After Ms. T blocked the account, she received repeated calls that threatened her because she was against the order and would be arrested. Knowing that she was scammed and lost 200 million VND, Ms. T. has registered with the police to prevent high-tech crime, Police of Hanoi.
The case is only one of 30 cases in which the Crime Prevention Team uses the computer network, the Police Department of Crime Prevention and the High-Tech Police that were received from Hanoi in early 2017.
According to Lieutenant Colonel Le Ngoc Tri, the head of the Crime Prevention Team uses computer networks, the trick that fraudsters use to trick people into transferring money through their accounts is quite similar. They would make a phone call to the public counter and claim to be the postmaster who informs the content packet that people owe an amount to the bank if they are not paid. The object will say that someone has beaten. Personal information to open and spend that money should help to contact the police in Ho Chi Minh City to help investigate.
Then the other person claimed that he was an official in Ho Chi Minh City who informed people of suspected illegal money laundering of billions of dong. Then the object advises to transfer to the person who claims to be superior to asking the people to ask their supervisors to open an inspection. At the request of the object people go to the bank, open a new account in the name of the people themselves, but have to use the telephone number of the "inspection council" to provide the telephone registration service internet banking and deposit all the money on the account.

Calls often make the request of people who claim to be police.
Even cases of objects to execute fake arrest warrants have been sent to the victim via telephone. The team has received the case in which the victim is a retiree in Hanoi and has transferred the amount of up to 4 billion for three accounts with the above tricks. After he returned, he went to the police station to report.
One of the difficulties in clarifying these cases is the fact that the supervisors, often led abroad, communicate with Vietnam via the internet, but can not detect the internet providers. IP. Cooperation with the police in some countries has not led to the identification of subjects or not to the capture of the leader, the leader.
In particular, the verification process also shows that the account holders who transfer money to the victims are not the fraudsters but the people, even students in the poor rural areas, the shortage of the border concept. When they were called to work with the police, they said they were drawing up these accounts and selling them to the buyer for about 2 million VND.
In fact, the seller and the buyer of the account do not know each other often are led by another person. In some cases, the withdrawal was also verified in countries such as Malaysia, Cambodia … not in Vietnam.
In order to prevent fraudulent transfers of money through the account, Lieutenant Colonel Le Ngoc Tri advised people to be vigilant, not to change account information and not to transfer money. When detecting unusual calls or criminals, report this immediately to the nearest police and bank officer. The department also sent an official dispatch to the state bank's commercial banks and the stock stock to find out when people see that the bank is transferring large amounts of money into the account so that people can report trapped tricks or not.
