4,426 telecom and online fraud cases solved in 2017
    2018-February-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TOTAL of 4,426 telecom and online fraud cases were solved in Shenzhen last year, up by 131 percent compared with 2016, the Shenzhen Evening News reported yesterday.

Statistics showed that 1,396 suspects involved in telecom and online fraud cases were detained in Shenzhen last year, with a year-on-year growth of 93 percent. A total of 395 million yuan (US$62.69 million) swindled by scammers from victims was intercepted by the police, and 89.42 million yuan was returned to victims.

The city’s police also helped police from Hong Kong, Macao and other provinces and countries intercept 127 million yuan involved in telecom and online fraud cases. Over 20,800 telecom devices used by the fraud rings were shut down and 42,000 victims were prevented from transferring money to the scammers by the police.

As a result, the number of telecom and online fraud cases reported to the police has declined for 28 consecutive months in the city.

The city’s anti-fraud office held a ceremony Jan. 26 to collectively return funds to fraud victims. A total of 18.63 million yuan was returned to victims of 54 telecom and online scams.

The office also worked closely with banks and third-party payment platforms in Shenzhen to crack down on telecom and online frauds by introducing a variety of new measures.

Fan Wenbo, vice president of the Shenzhen Banking Association, was selected as one of the “top 10 anti-fraud pioneers” in Guangdong during a ceremony jointly held by GDTV and the Nanfang Daily on Feb. 5. Fan is responsible for setting up an anti-fraud work system for the banking industry in Shenzhen.

As of Nov. 25 last year, banks in Shenzhen had helped police from across the country handle 28,300 suspicious bank accounts and freeze 834 million yuan involved in telecom and online frauds, helping 488 victims regain 135 million yuan.
