106 suspects detained in telecom fraud
    2018-07-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BAO’AN police successfully cracked a telecom fraud case recently, arresting 106 suspects and freezing over 400,000 yuan (US$59,790) of illicit money, the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported Saturday.

The gang not only boasted many members, but also adopted a diverse array of methods, including a pyramid scheme, to recruit members into the gang. It has been reported that over 1,000 people across the country were scammed by the group.

In light of a 500-yuan fraud case this March, Bao’an police grouped the case with a number of similar cases and set up a special team to collect more clues, as they thought it was very likely that the crimes had been committed by the same gang.

On May 17, Bao’an police arrested 35 suspects in Dongguan, Guangzhou and other cities. A gang under the name China E-Commerce Association gradually emerged.

From June 6 to 13, the police busted another three dens in Guangzhou and arrested 31 suspects. The special team arrested the head of the gang and 29 suspects from another five dens in Guangzhou on June 26.

The head of the gang had made up organizations, such as China E-Commerce Association and China Marketing Association, to recruit members since 2015. The group adopted marketing management and had clear division of labor.

In addition, the group allocated specific mobile phones to the members and trained them in centralized methods for swindling. By using social networking software and pretending to be women, swindlers would first befriend male netizens and later cheat them out of red packets or money by lying about emergencies, such as illness, injury and bereavement.

The gang would then turn the victims into members of the fictional organizations and ask them to pay 6,900 to 8,900 yuan in admission fees, after which they would receive training to practice fraud.

It has been reported that 112 cases of marriage fraud have been cracked in Bao’an District so far this year.
