There was a regrettable incident in which a job seeker in his twenties who had been subjected to a voice phishing scam took his own life last year.
At that time, a policeman in his 40s who had cheated by calling the victim and fooling himself into prosecutor Kim Min-soo was caught by the police.
This is KNN reporter Kang So-ra.
is an officetel in Gwangalli, Busan.
An unfamiliar piece of equipment is placed in the room where the police found it.
This equipment is a machine that converts calls from China to 010 domestic numbers.
If you change the calling number to 010, it is easy to deceive victims, and you can create more than 30 numbers per machine.
Let's listen to the voice of a phishing organization that has ripped 10 billion won to 300 people over the past five years on a phone from China with a change of clothes.
[Prosecutor Kim Min-soo's impersonation organization member (Last January): This is Prosecutor Kim Min-soo who is in charge of the high-tech crime investigation team at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office.
I will briefly reconsider with the fostering of the prosecutor.]
Mr. B, a job-prepared student in his 20s, who was victim of voice phishing after receiving this phone call last year, ended his own life.
At the time, the Blue House National Petition Bulletin posted a story of the bereaved family asking for the pretense of prosecutor Kim Min-soo to be captured, which earned public resentment.
[Mother of the victim: After working normally in the countryside for two years, I might not have died if I knew it.
I don't think this is the world these days.]
Recently, Mr. A in his 40s, pretending to be a prosecutor, was caught by the police.
It has been confirmed that Mr. A has meticulously cooperated in China with a domestic gangster organization that has been involved in the voice phishing business.
