摘要: During the national anti-epidemic period, some criminals took the idea of ​​the epidemic and implemented new types of financial fraud. Beijing Banking Regulatory Bureau reminds consumers that while they are trying their best in personal health protection, they must also be vigilant and beware of "four types" of fraud.

According to the Shanghai Securities News, the Beijing Banking Regulatory Bureau recently issued a notice to mobilize the deployment of "3.15" consumer rights protection education and publicity week activities throughout the industry.

During the national anti-epidemic period, some criminals took the idea of ​​the epidemic and implemented new types of financial fraud. Beijing Banking Regulatory Bureau reminds consumers that while they are trying their best in personal health protection, they must also be vigilant and beware of "four types" of frauds.

  • The first is low-interest loan fraud. For example, using "outbreak loan" to cheat people.
  • The second is investment and financial fraud, such as the fraud using the "blockchain" concept.  "There were also high returns during the epidemic." In view of the characteristics of public epidemic prevention at home and the general availability of information through the Internet or mobile phones, criminals use the concept of "blockchain" to issue virtual currencies such as Coronaviruscoin, and claim that the funds raised are used to construct masks, protective clothing factories overseas, or for research and production of coronavirus vaccines and promises high returns to cheating victims' money.
  • The third is information theft. Criminals publish fake masks, epidemic prevention materials and other information through social software, second-hand trading websites and other channels. After the transfer charges the consumer fee, the victim will be "pulled", or the victim will be tempted to enter sensitive personal information through phishing links, which causes consumers' property damage.
  • The fourth is illegal fund-raising fraud. For example, use "sales rebates" to scam people. The criminals said "purchasing anti-epidemic materials can also make money", and also promised buyers that they can "rebate points" or even "join to make a profit" to defraud victims of money.
