More than 6000 people were deceived by "cloud raising cats", but the batch is not "the victim is too stupid"
Talk about Fengsheng
Only when anti-fraud propaganda is in place, preventive measures are adequate, daily supervision is online, post-event investigations are strict, and punishment and accountability are thorough, can scams like "cloud raising cats" be stopped.
Since the mobile Internet, everything can be "clouded". Recently, some media uncovered a scam that ran away after raising funds in the name of "cloud raising cats." According to reports, the tool used to commit the crime was an APP and its website called "Miaomiao". More than 6000 people fell into this "trap".
Reading the report carefully, you can find that, on the surface, this is a life service APP that solves the needs of raising pets, but it is actually a Ponzi scheme with the nature of MLM.
They no longer simply appear as P2P or other "high return" financial products, but put on a "cloud raising cat" vest. On the one hand, this can confuse the victims and let them relax their vigilance; on the other hand, this vest can easily hide their real body and avoid supervision.
The so-called Dao is one foot high and the magic is high. When crooks introduce new tricks, there will usually be new victims. However, in this incident, what was unexpected is that many comments directed criticism at the victim. "There are so many fools, scammers are obviously not enough", "IQ tax is very good" "This can be deceived, cerebral palsy"... Comments like this have received a lot of support.
In their view, the reason why you are deceived is that you are stupid, greedy, and you deserve it. This kind of thinking about people and things is too simple and rude, and too cruel.
There is an example in the report. A girl who was deceived first saw an advertisement in Tieba, claiming that raising cats online can make money, and the return is high. She also suspected that she was a liar at first, but when she saw "many people said they could make money", after being pulled into the group, she saw "screenshots of money being forwarded by others" and couldn't help it.
It can be seen that the liar has done a lot of foreshadowing in the process of deception, and they have attracted people to the bait step by step. Without certain social experience and professional knowledge, it is easy to fall into the trap. Onlookers often think that such a low-level routine is actually believed by some? However, because the authorities were exposed to very specific scams, they often fell unknowingly.
We cannot ask everyone to be absolutely rational and shrewd. In fact, we cannot ask for it. Therefore, it is useless to accuse the victim, and the target will ultimately be aimed at the fraud group. In any case, in this incident, it was the fraud gang behind the so-called "cloud raising cats" who violated the law and they were the first people to be blamed.
More than 6,000 people were deceived by "cloud raising cats". This is not a small case. The relevant departments must pay attention to it and strictly investigate.
Of course, for the victims, the propaganda such as "liing earning", "walking earning" and "playing earning" must be subconsciously avoided. Not only makes you comfortable, but also allows you to earn money, which does not conform to the law of "paying is rewarded". There are no pie-dropping days, only places to bury traps. This lesson should also be learned.
But in the final analysis, only when anti-fraud propaganda is in place, preventive measures are adequate, daily supervision is online, post-event investigations are strict, and punishment and accountability are thorough, can similar scams be stopped. At present, the Hangzhou police with jurisdiction has opened the case, and the local police in Zhengzhou, where the victims are concentrated, have also accepted the case. It is hoped that this matter will have a result that will satisfy the public.
