The police has recently cracked down a fraud ring and found the tricks that the fraud rings have been playing become even more diverse. In the past, they may pretend to be officials of a government agency and would collect deposits directly. Now they may ask for passbooks, bank cards and seals to monitor your bank accounts.
According to police investigation, the fraud rings usually cheat their victims by telling them that their identities are falsely used to apply for medical allowances and involve a number of money laundering cases and thus the concerned government agencies must monitor their accounts, otherwise will freeze their property. The fraud rings will then instruct the victims to terminate their deposit from the current financial institutions and deposit all their money into a new account and then hand over their passbooks, bank cards and seals to the fraud rings. The fraud rings would withdraw the money day by day. After waiting for a few weeks without getting any notice from the fraud rings, the victims finally get suspicious and check their account to find all the money they have deposited have gone.
The police call for people to watch out for the following:
1. Government authorities will never visit citizens to collect their cash, passbooks, bank cards and seals.
2. The Court and the Prosecutor's Office will send judicial documents by registered mail. If the postman does not meet the recipient, he will affix a notice on the door informing the recipient to fetch the judicial documents from the local police station. Faxes or photocopies of judicial documents are definitely tricks of fraud rings.
3. If you involve in financial accounts and/or bank cards fraud cases, please call the financial institution immediately to report loss and stop all the functions of the account and also report to the police.
4. Receiving a call whose number begins with 110, 165, 119 or 0800, please hang up immediately and call 165 anti-fraud hotline because it is a fraud call.
