China News Service, Xuzhou, August 26 (Zhu Zhigeng, Cai Han, Zuo Yi) A boy from a college in Xuzhou, Jiangsu, was introduced by netizens and met his “destined goddess” on a social platform. In order to meet the female netizen, the boy swiped a gift of 1,800 yuan, but was deleted by the other party. On August 26, the Xuzhou police notified the recently cracked “5.19” large telecom fraud case, arresting 116 suspects, involving more than 600 related cases, and victimizing more than 2,700 people, with a total value of more than 30 million yuan.

Student Xiaowen (pseudonym) of a university in Xuzhou, who has always been alone, often chats with netizens on the Internet. On May 19, a netizen recommended an app called “Song Chat” to him, saying that there are countless beauties. Xiaowen, who was itchy, quickly registered an account and clicked on the avatars of “beauties”. While thinking about whom to chat with, Xiaowen suddenly received a private message: “Hey, handsome guy, we are so close, are you a student?” The heartbeat of Xiaowen, who was hit up for the first time in his life, quickly accelerated. “Beauty” started chatting.

From hobbies to life and learning, Xiaowen felt that he had met a “destined woman”, so he asked to meet. “Beauty” is also unambiguous. To put it bluntly, you can add a friend of the chat software first, provided that you first swipe two gifts on the platform. Xiaowen didn’t say a word, and quickly bought two gifts worth 188 yuan on the platform, and then added “beauties” to the chat software. After a few words, “beauty” also proposed that she wanted to see photos and she needed to make gifts, she wanted to make voices, she needed to make gifts, and she wanted to meet, she needed to make gifts… Xiaowen, who had been dazzled by “love”, made a gift of 1,800 yuan. .

I thought that the “beauty” requirement was finally met, and he could “boom out” immediately, but when Xiaowen asked when he could meet again, the response he got was a reminder that he was deleted. Reminiscent of the overwhelming “anti-fraud propaganda” messages, Xiaowen realized that he had been deceived, so he hurried to call the police.

The Tongshan Branch of Xuzhou Public Security Bureau set up a “5.19” special class to follow the line and conduct in-depth research and judgment. The investigation found that “Song Chat” is a social software platform that induces members to recharge and consume by sending text, voice, video, etc. with pornographic content.

The police of the task force carried out online investigations, and through information flow, capital flow and related expansion investigations, the “drainage”, anchors, guilds and other sub-level personnel were locked, and the structure of the criminal gang became clear. Digging further along the line, the police found that the “Gelo” company was registered in Baiyun District, Guangzhou. The company’s senior management was composed of Zhu, Cao, Yuan and others. It had technical, auditing, operation, accounting and other institutions under it, and the system was huge. , There are more than 150 online anchors all over the country.

After the “Song Talk” company was established in March of this year, it used a corporate operation method and used cashing and dating as pornographic bait to induce netizens to recharge their consumption and carry out fraud. In order to evade the police attack, the gang entrusted the fourth-party payment company “Quick Payment” to clear and settle the funds flow, and the two parties jointly divided the fraudulent funds. The police of the task force immediately rushed to Guangzhou to conduct an investigation. With the assistance of the local police, they found out more than 10 dens of the gang in the country.
