虛擬綁架騙局以新西敏市當地的學生為作案目標

新西敏市– 新西敏市警察局慎重提醒外國學生及其家人警惕虛擬綁架騙局。騙子通過自稱外國政府高級官員來勒索學生及其家人。 上週,這些騙子使用微信(WeChat – 一種流行的中國社交媒體平台)聯繫一名新西敏市學生并威脅此學生,如果此學生不遵守他們的要求,他們要傷害此學生的父母。受害者被告知不要使用他們的手機、不要聯繫他們的家人、不要使用任何形式的社交媒體、並遵守騙子們的每一個要求。 同時,騙子通過微信與學生的家人聯繫,並告知他們的女兒被綁架了。網上的騙子們要求受害者家人付贖金來換取他們女兒的安全。騙子們設法說服此學生逃離加拿大,之後她在另一個國家被找到而並沒有被綁架。 “通常這些學生們受到威脅、被騙錢、並被強迫去躲藏起來,”傑夫斯科特警官(Sergeant Jeff Scott)說。 “一旦網上的騙子們恐嚇學生使其躲藏起來,他們就會聯繫其父母並騙取他們的錢財。” 如果您收到讓您懷疑是騙局的消息或電話,請不要洩露任何個人信息並忽略這些威脅。 任何認為自己是欺詐或詐騙受害者的人都可致電加拿大反欺詐中心1-888-495-8501,並致電604-525-5411來聯繫新西敏市警察局,或致電當地警方。   -30- 聯繫人:傑夫斯科特警官(Sergeant Jeff Scott) 電話/電郵: 604-529-2423, jscott@nwpolice.org This is a translated version of our previous media release about the virtual kidnapping scam.
