At present, telecommunications network fraud is showing a high incidence, and some criminals are also targeting overseas student groups. In response to this, Chinese lawyers said in an online interview with a reporter from China News Agency that fraudulent schemes are constantly being renovated, but they never leave their origins. Overseas students should know the law and how to use it, be calm and calm when things happen, and don’t give fraudsters a chance.
It is reported that Chinese embassies and consulates in the United States and the United Kingdom have repeatedly reminded international students to prevent telecommunications fraud, do not disclose personal information such as bank cards, and do not believe in any transfer requests. In this regard, Cheng Shaoming, director of the American Taihetai Washington Law Firm, said that with the continuous spread of overseas epidemics, telecommunications fraud is closely following current affairs, and fraudulent methods are cleverly established, which is extremely confusing and deceptive, making it difficult for many Chinese students to prevent. , And eventually fell into a scam and suffered losses.
For example, Cheng Shaoming said that pretending to be Chinese embassies and consulates and other authoritative institutions, pretending to be the government to request personal information, claiming that the packages sent by international students contain prohibited items, and renting fraud are “scams” that Chinese students often encounter. “On the one hand, some international students have not been deeply involved in the world, and they often have an attitude of calming things down.’Major matters are turned into smaller ones and trivial matters are turned into smaller ones.’ This allows criminals to take advantage of them. On the other hand, scammers make good use of foreign students who are alone in a foreign land, and they are more able to bear them. Weak psychological characteristics, coupled with their unfamiliarity with local laws and regulations, are more likely to be credulous when faced with words such as’suspected cases’ and’will be sent back to the country’.”
How should international students recognize fraud and raise their safety awareness? Cheng Shaoming said that we must understand the local policies and customs in advance, and never do anything illegal. “Threatening that international students will be arrested, detained or deported if they do not pay is a very obvious fraud and intimidation. If international students are aware of violations such as speeding, they should promptly consult relevant lawyers or seek services in the United States. The help of platform professionals instead of rushing to transfer money.”
