Resident prevented from falling for fraud
    2017-December-26  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LURED by so-called high returns, a man surnamed Zhou in Luohu District almost fell victim to a financial investment product fraud, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

Zhou went to an e-counter of a local Bank of China branch and wanted to transfer 1 million yuan (US$152,415) to the business department of a bank in Fujian Province via mobile banking. However, the local bank staff found that it was a typical trick and Zhou was prevented from suffering economic losses.

According to incomplete statistics from Shenzhen’s banking industry, by the end of last year, Shenzhen had issued 205 million bank cards, and the number of bank card transactions reached 4.55 billion.

According to data from the city’s economic, trade and information commission, from September 2016 to April this year, Shenzhen launched a special action to crack down on the illegal sale of bank card information. Police arrested 33 suspects, seized eight modified POS (Point of Sale) machines and intercepted 204 messages concerning the illegal sales.

It has been reported that a fraud gang used the modified POS machines to steal bank card information, duplicate the bank cards and then make fake cards to withdraw cash. The total amount involved was nearly 30 million yuan, with the largest single case reaching up to a million yuan.

“As frauds occur frequently at the end of the year, it is suggested that residents avoid transferring money to strangers,” said a staffer at a State-owned bank.
