驻多伦多总领馆再次提醒中国公民注意防范电信诈骗
(本安全提醒有效期至2018年3月31日)
2017/11/01

  近日,加拿大皇家骑警向华人社区发出警告,称加拿大出现一种针对中国新移民的绑架诈骗,谎称当事人亲人被绑架,向其勒索钱财。

  我馆一段时间以来已接到很多关于电信诈骗的咨询和投诉,皇家骑警警告中提及的类似案件在我馆领区安大略省和曼尼托巴省亦有发生。嫌疑人自称“中国国际刑警驻渥太华联络处”警官或者中国驻多伦多总领馆工作人员,告知接电人其名下有一份寄回中国的UPS快递包裹被中国海关查扣,内含多张银行卡(或多本护照),要求接电人根据其提示转接到报案中心,随后开始套取接电人个人信息,而后实施诈骗。部分中国留学生还反映接到自称我馆工作人员电话,告知他们护照等身份证件出现问题,已被限制入境中国,要求配合调查。由于来电号码显示为我馆值班电话号码(实际是嫌疑人采用技术手段伪装而成),上述诈骗电话欺骗性较强。

  中国驻多伦多总领馆再次郑重提醒广大华侨华人和中国留学生注意防范电信诈骗。“中国国际刑警驻渥太华联络处”为虚构机构,国际刑警组织中国国家中心局亦未在渥太华设立所谓的“联络处”。驻加使领馆亦从未直接处理过包裹被扣等具体个案。旅居海外中国公民如在中国涉案,相关法律文书会由我驻外外交机构通过正规渠道专递,使领馆不会通过电话核实信息,尤其是银行账户信息。如不慎上当受骗,请即向当地警方报案。如不慎透露信息,可向加拿大反诈骗中心(Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre)报案,要求其保护财产安全。

  加拿大皇家骑警的提醒信息

  近日,低陆地区加拿大皇家骑警向华人社区发出警告称,加拿大出现了一种针对中国新移民的绑架诈骗,谎称其亲人被绑架,企图向家属勒索钱财。皇家骑警女发言人Annie Linteau警官表示,警方在10月份的第一周就接到三宗类似报警,且警方自七月份就已经意识到这类骗局,并成立一个专案组来调查这种犯罪活动。皇家骑警在七月份接到六宗这种双管齐下的诈骗(two pronged scam)报警,随后警方发布了第一份警告。

  加拿大的中国留学生接到自称是中国驻加拿大使领领馆工作人员的信息,谎称其涉嫌在中国的某种犯罪活动,然后联系学生在中国的家属,称亲人被绑架,索要赎金。

  根据中国驻当地使领馆的通知,中国公民绝对不会被电话告知其所涉的法律诉讼。皇家骑警在声明中也指出,如果中国公民在中国有任何的法律诉讼,相关法律文件会直接由中国使领馆邮寄给当事人,尤其是涉及个人银行业务信息的时候。

  Linteau提醒,任何接到类似电话的人都不要答应犯罪分子的要求,并迅速向当地警方报警(完)。

  (RCMP warn about falsified kidnappings targeting Chinese nationals)

  Lower Mainland RCMP are renewing their warning about a scam that targets newly arrived Chinese immigrants trying to convince them a loved one has been kidnapped in order to extort money from their families.

  RCMP spokeswoman Staff Sgt. Annie Linteau said police have had three new cases reported to them in the first week of October, the first since police became aware of the scam in July and since forming a task force to investigate the activity.

  The RCMP issued their first warning in July after six incidents were reported to police about the two-pronged scam.

  Chinese students in Canada received messages, from people falsely claiming to be Chinese government officials, that their personal information had been compromised and they were implicated in crimes in China.

  Then the students’ families in China were then contacted and told that their relatives were being held against their will and that they would have to pay a ransom.

  “The RCMP would like to remind the Chinese community that these automated calls are fraudulent,” Linteau said. “Anyone who receives similar calls should not comply with any demands and hang up immediately.”

  And Chinese nationals would never be informed of any pending legal action against them by telephone message, according to a notice from the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China.

  “Should any Chinese citizens be involved in any legal cases in China, the relevant legal documents will be mailed to them directly from Chinese diplomatic missions,” according to a statement in the RCMP news release,” especially personal banking information.”

  Linteau said anyone receiving a similar cal should immediately report the incident to local police.
