A total of more than 260 million yuan was frozen to avoid the loss of people’s property of nearly 3.8 billion yuan.
Since this year, the public security organs have steadily intensified their efforts to crack down on the crime of telecom network fraud. On June 24, the Municipal Anti-Fraud Center, together with the Qingpu Branch, smashed up a telecommunications network fraud criminal gang and arrested 40 suspects. After investigating the criminal group through fake female identity, the victim was met on the social networking platforms such as strangers and Wechat. Then the victim was induced to buy virtual equipment when playing mobile games or brush gifts when watching live webcasts. The criminal group benefited from it.
On June 26, the Municipal Anti-Fraud Center, together with Minhang Branch Bureau, destroyed two criminal gangs suspected of swine dish fraud and arrested 62 suspects. After investigating the two criminal gangs pretending to be successful people on the Internet, they made friends with the opposite sex through social networking platform, nurtured their feelings, and then guided the victims to invest in APP for collections such as “30 seconds open”, “gambling jade”. In fact, the ups and downs of these APPs are controlled by human, resulting in victim suffering. Huge property losses.
In addition, the city anti-fraud center also relies on the intelligence of public security to improve the ability of early warning of such cases and dissuasion of potential victims. At 11 a.m. on June 16, the City Anti-Fraud Center found that Ms. Wang, a citizen, had received a fraudulent telephone call from the Counterfeit Public Security Law, and promptly launched a joint dissuasion work. But Ms. Wang’s phone has always been shut down, police officers from the local police station found that Ms. Wang was not at home. Subsequently, the police searched continuously for as long as seven hours, and finally contacted Ms. Wang, who had been deeply brainwashed, at 18:00 on the same day. Ms. Wang said that if it was not for the police’s advice to stop, she was ready to transfer nearly 300,000 yuan of deposits in bank cards to fraudsters.
At 16:00 on June 26, the city anti-fraud Center found that Ms. Yang, a citizen, was suffering from fraud under the false public security law. Anti-fraud Center police quickly dialed Ms. Yang’s phone and instructed local police stations to carry out joint dissuasion, but at this time Ms. Yang’s phone has been transferred to other people’s mobile phones. The police finally found Ms. Yang on Songbin Road, Baoshan District, at about 17 o’clock that day. It is understood that Ms. Yang received a call from the Guiyang Public Security Bureau that day, and was told that she was suspected of money laundering and would be arrested in Shanghai if she did not cooperate with the investigation. Due to the timely work of the police, more than 1.4 million yuan of economic losses have been recovered for Ms. Yang.
The police also carried out centralized propaganda against telecommunications network fraud. Beginning on June 23, the municipal public security organs launched a comprehensive public security prevention and centralized household propaganda campaign. Over the past month, the city’s public security police visited more than 5.12 million households, more than 100,000 shops along the street, distributed more than 6 million copies of publicity materials, pushed more than 16,000 articles of information-based micro-blogs and micro-letters. Through face-to-face publicity, more than 2,300 cases of telecommunications network fraud were effectively prevented and more than 100 million economic losses were recovered for the masses. Yuan.
Public security organs, together with other enterprises such as the beauty troupe, distribute propaganda materials to the masses through fast-selling brothers, carry out precise, overlapping and contact propaganda, and constantly enhance the awareness and ability of the masses to detect and prevent fraud.
In addition, Shanghai Public Security has set up anti-fraud sub-centers in 16 sub-bureaus of the city, with the municipal anti-fraud center taking the lead in substantive and integrated operation, to implement the requirement of “every case must be investigated and every case must be investigated” in telecommunication network fraud cases.
Despite some achievements in combating crime, the total number of fraud cases in Shanghai Telecom Network is still relatively large (the City anti-fraud center sends more than 35,000 early warning messages per day, dials nearly 600 dissuasive telephone calls and sends more than 120 dissuasive instructions to local police stations). The property losses of the deceived people are still relatively large, and the case prevention is carried out. The situation of control is still grim. On the basis of increasing the intensity of the attack, the police will also further carry out preventive propaganda.
In view of the two types of telecommunication network fraud cases which have occurred more recently in this city, the police give the following prompts to the general public:
The first category is the fraud of telecommunication network for financial personnel, and financial personnel should do “two essentials”: strict protection of important information, non-disclosure of company personnel list and communication methods to unfamiliar mailboxes, QQ friends and Weixin friends, and avoidance of being used by criminals; strict implementation of financial system, company accounting and cashier Before transferring funds, financial personnel must strictly implement the approval procedures and verify them face to face. They must not only rely on the chat information on QQ and Wechat to carry out the transfer task, but also do not use QQ and Wechat to transfer funds as far as possible, so as not to paralyze carelessness.
The second category is aimed at “killing pig dish” telecommunications network fraud. To achieve the “three do not”, that is, do not trust the rhetoric of opposite-sex friends through the network; do not believe the so-called “investment financing platform”, “gambling site loopholes” and other ways of making money quickly recommended by others; do not take chances, find suspected fraud to stop losses immediately, timely alarm.
