中國籍大學生被騙 Chinese Students were Defrauded

大家好,

前幾天警方通知協會,有兩位中國籍大學生被騙了一大筆錢。

一名冒充中國大使館官員的男子打電話給他們。電話裡說 他們的中國身份證信息被盜用於開設銀行賬戶,並涉及嚴重的金融犯罪,而他們是嫌疑人。 然後他們被傳送給一個偽裝成華裔警察的人。 騙子說,雖然他們還沒有被定為罪犯,但他們可能被引渡回中國做進一步調查。 如果引渡發生,他們就不能再在英國學習。 然後他們被傳遞給 偽華裔警察的上司 來幫助他們。

兩位學生都被嚇壞了,完全相信了來電者。 他們被要求在手機和筆記本電腦上安裝一個名為 Telegram 的軟件。 罪犯使用 Telegram 監視了學生2天。 另一名偽民警隨後聯繫他們說 他們需要申請“保釋候審”並需要繳納押金。結果學生支付了6次,共計 1 595 498 人民幣。 他們還繼續要求越來越多的錢,說有困難 必須支付更多的保證金。

警方的欺詐調查小組正在處理這兩起案件。警方建議協會向所有學生和社區傳播一些預防犯罪的建議。 我們需要採取額外的預防措施來信任電話中的人和索要錢財的人。如果有人聲稱來自中國大使館或警察,我們都需要保持警惕。 如果你接到這樣的電話,你應該要求對方提供身份證明號碼,並告訴他們你將通過官方網站上的號碼回電,而不是他們提供的號碼。不要寄錢。 向警方或 Action Fraud 網站報告任何犯罪行為。

大使館不會主動聯繫個人,交保釋應該到庭判決,中英沒有引渡條約。

Dear all,

A few days ago, police contacted the Association warning us that two Chinese students had been defrauded a large sum of money.

They have been called by a man pretending to be an officer from Chinese Embassy. They were told that their Chinese ID information was stolen and used to open a bank account, and it is involved in a serious financial crime. They became the suspects.

Then they are transmitted to a man pretending to be a Chinese police. The fake police said that although they had not been defined as criminals yet, they may need to be extradited back to China for further enquiries. If the extradition happens, they can’t study in the UK anymore.  They were then passed onto the fake police’s superior to assist them.

Both students have been really terrified and totally believed the caller.  They were asked to install a software called Telegram, both on their phone and laptop. Then the criminal monitored the students using Telegram for 2 days. Another fake police officer then made contact and said they have to pay for a security deposit to apply for a “post a bail and await trial” and they ended up paying them 6 times and the total amount is 1,595,498 chinese yuan.  They continued to ask for more and more money saying there were difficulties and they must pay more security deposit.
 
Both crimes are being dealt with by the police’s Fraud Investigation team. Police advised the Association to disseminate some crime prevention advice to all students and community. We need take extra precaution in trusting the person over the phone and those that request for money. We all need to stay alert if someone claims to be from the Chinese Embassy or Police. If you receive such call, you should ask for their ID number and told them that you will call them back from a number on Official website, not a number they provided. Don’t send any money. Report any crime to either police or Action Fraud website.

The embassy would not take the initiative to contact individuals. If bail is delivered, it should be judged in court. There is no extradition treaty between China and Britain.

Furthermore, I have also found the following ‘Ten golden rules to prevent fraud’ from the Action Fraud website:

Ten golden rules to prevent fraud
Remember these ten golden rules to help you prevent fraud and beat the scammers.
1.    Be suspicious of all ‘too good to be true’ offers and deals. There are no guaranteed get-rich-quick schemes.
2.    Don’t agree to offers or deals immediately. Insist on time to get independent or legal advice before making a decision.
3.    Don’t hand over money or sign anything until you’ve checked someone’s credentials and their company’s.
4.    Never send money to anyone you don’t know or trust, whether in the UK or abroad, or use methods of payment you’re not comfortable with.
5.    Never give banking or personal details to anyone you don’t know or trust. This information is valuable so make sure you protect it.
6.    Always log on to a website directly rather than clicking on links in an email.
7.    Don’t just rely on glowing testimonials. Find solid, independent evidence of a company’s success.
8.    Always get independent or legal advice if an offer involves money, time or commitment.
9.    If you spot a scam or have been scammed, report it and get help.
10.    Don’t be embarrassed about reporting a scam. Because the scammers are cunning and clever there’s no shame in being deceived. By reporting it, you’ll make it more difficult for them to deceive others.

Regards,
Michael Ng
