Publisher:管理员Date:2021-04-23Views:14

Dear students:

Preventing and combating new types of illegal crimes on communication networks is a matter of national political security, social development and stability, and to the interests and well-being of teachers and students. Xi Jinping, President of China, attaches great importance to anti-fraud and has issued significant instructions on many occasions, requiring the national departments of politics and law and network-supervision departments to spare no efforts to crack down telecommunication fraud and effectively ensure the safety of people's property. At present, there is a high incidence of telecommunication fraud. As a matter of fact, scammers tend to target at college students, who are in lack of social experience and precaution. They constantly come up with new fraud tactics and repeatedly deceive college students. According to statistics, college students have become the major victims to telecommunication fraud. Therefore, you shall take precautions against the following tricks of fraud:

1. Click farming fraud: Scammers would release information of part-time job through recruitment websites, social-net software and other approaches. On the grounds that opening an online store requires a rapid increase in credibility, they recruit the victims to do some click farming work. Scammers promised to refund the shopping expenses and extra commission fee immediately after the transaction, which seems like "zero investment" and "no risk". When the first transaction is done, the scammer will rebate a small amount to the victims to let them taste the sweetness. Subsequently, when the victims finish a large amount of the transaction, the scammer would refuse to return the payment with various reasons and block your account.

2. Pretending to be the customer service staff: The scammer purchases relevant information of online shopping customers through illegal channels and then contact them, pretending to be the customer service staff and claiming that the products you bought had quality problems, or they would pretend to be the customer service staff of the delivery company, claiming the product you bought had been lost. Consequently, they pretend to refund and compensate the victim. A fake refund website or QR code would be sent to the victim, and scammers would request them to fill in the bank card number, verification code and other information and then steal the money in your bank card.

3. Online loan fraud: Scammers would use the internet or text messages to launch information such as loan processing and credit card handling, along with inductive statements such as "no collateral", "zero threshold", and "low interest rate" to attract the attention of victims. After that, scammers would pretend to be the bank customer service staff or the staff of the loan company who want to test your loan repayment ability and then demand for transaction to defraud the victim's bank account, password and other required information to implement the fraud.

In order to prevent telecommunication fraud and build a safe and harmonious campus, Safety and Security Office of our university proposes:

First, take precautions and improve the distinguishing ability. Don’t trust phone calls and information from unknown sources. Don’t expose personal information about yourself and your family to unknown people. Don’t transfer money to unfamiliar bank accounts. If you really need to transfer and remit, please carefully verify the counterparty's account, identity and the reason for the transfer. If you are already in an event of fraud, you must immediately enter “Tencent 110” in the mobile phone applet to call the police, which is the most efficient way to lessen property losses.

Second, keep your feet on the ground and don't be dreamy. Be more discerning about all kinds of "online part-time jobs" and "job hunting" information. Don't easily believe the "favorable" conditions offered by the others. Don't be tempted by high salaries, and resolutely put an end to part-time click farming. Don’t submit a deposit without verification. And don’t disclose your ID, bank card, verification code and other personal information to strangers.

Third, consume rationally and resist illegal online loans. Learn the relevant financial laws and regulations, and assess the repayment ability before take loans. If there is a loan demand, go to a formal financial institution.
