Vietnam police arrest 32 suspects that swindled $8.2mn from Vietnamese victims

February 09, 2024

Police in Nghe An Province, north-central Vietnam, have arrested 32 suspects from a gang that colluded with other suspects working for companies abroad to carry out scams in which they pretended to be judicial officers to cheat their Vietnamese victims out of over US$8.2 million. Nghe An accounts for 26 among the 32 arrested suspects, who were in charge of different roles in their scams. The cheaters later asked their victims to transfer their money to the designated bank accounts and follow their directions, including registering e-banking services, and then provided them with one-time passwords (OTPs) so that they appropriate money in their victims’ accounts. Local police are investigating the case to clarify the roles of each gang member in Vietnam and abroad. Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to get the latest news about Vietnam!
