Suqian, March 3 (Liu Lin, Tian Tingjiang, Wang Yan) "It's so dangerous, Officer Liu, fortunately you arrived in time, if you come later, I will transfer money, and the more than 26,3 yuan will be lost." On March 26, when Liu Chuanzuo, a police officer from the Suyu Branch of the Suqian City Public Security Bureau in Jiangsu Province, visited Ms. Liu, who had been defrauded in her jurisdiction, again talked about the telecommunications fraud she experienced more than 10 days ago, Ms. Liu still felt afraid, and expressed her heartfelt thanks to the police for "providing charcoal in the snow" to stop the scam in time.

On the afternoon of March 3, the Lailong Police Station received help from the people in the jurisdiction, saying that his daughter-in-law wanted to transfer money to a classmate in an elementary school abroad and was suspected of being scammed. "The situation was urgent, so I hurriedly took two team members to the scene of the incident to dissuade me." Liu Chuanzuo, a police officer, said that at that time, Ms. Liu was emotional and extremely resistant to the police, claiming that she had not encountered fraud, and that the other party was a "primary school classmate" she had not seen for many years.

"Are you an elementary school classmate, or did you meet online?" After understanding, Ms. Liu contacted a "primary school classmate" through online software chat, and then chatted with the other party for nearly a month, the other party said that he had moved abroad, and recommended that she download an unknown chat software, the "primary school classmate" said that she mailed a valuable gift to Ms. Liu, which had arrived at China Customs, but needed to pay a "customs clearance fee" of 11000,<> yuan to retrieve the item.

Ms. Liu's "primary school classmates" all communication was through chat software, never made voice or video contact, and the "primary school classmates" also repeatedly told Ms. Liu that her office environment did not allow answering phone calls and video connections, and at the same time guided Ms. Liu to ask her family not to tell.

"This is a typical telecommunications fraud case of mailing 'parcels' to pay 'customs clearance fees'." Liu Chuanzuo said that after understanding what happened, although Ms. Liu was dissuaded on the spot, she refused to believe that she was deceived, so she had to take her mobile phone and take her family to the police station for further dissuasion.
