World Crime

aPhnom-PenhA Beijing judge sentenced 91 people (59 females)  in a multinational telephone scam that targeted elderly Chinese.

This is the first in an international joint crackdown with law enforcement in China,Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Those convicted were part of a gang working out of Indonesia.  The defendants posed as court and police officials to defraud their Chinese victims. It is believed that the victims were defrauded out of more than 10 million yuan. The range of their sentences were from 18 months to eight years of hard time in prison and fines up to 8,000 yuan ($1285).

It is stated that there are over 600 suspects involved in this fraud scheme. The defendants were divided into seven groups to be sentenced in line with their level of involvement, there are more  convictions to come.

The scheme was played out as followed: A staged call was made to a victim, stating she/he was from a court and claimed that the person  called had outstanding claims against their bank account or credit card. When the victim disputed the claim the victim was transferred to a supposed police officer who instructed the victim to transfer funds to another bank account because the victim’s credit information and identity card had been comprised.

Officials states that people should confirm information face-to-face with police and never believe messages or calls from strangers claiming to be judicial officers.
