Police Arrest 4 Suspects in Job Listing Scams 臉書高薪徵才詐騙 求職者遭囚淪人頭戶

Recently scam groups are using Facebook for job recruitment and subsequently held people in captivity after the interview.


The suspects refused to cooperate until the police warn them to break down the door.

“Open the door! Or we will break down shortly!”The police arrested four suspects onsite and rescued several victims. It turned out that the scam group posted job listings on Facebook with high salaries, luring these victims for face-to-face interviews, then coercing them to hand over their bankbooks, and restricting their freedom by having them under forceful house arrest in Datong District, Taipei.

Huang Guang-hsi, Chief, Jiancheng Station, Datong Precinct, Police Dept., Taipei: “After interrogation by police, the case is transferred pursuant to offenses against personal liberty, fraud, and crime of coercion, to Taipei Shihlin District Prosecutors Office for investigation.”

There are many traps in Facebook job ads, and now scam groups have extended their crooked mind to famous e-commerce companies, utilizing Shopee's logo to make job recruiting videos, advertising that compensation is case-by-case and minimum pay starts at NT$500 per case. Those who are interested should privately message them. Some ads use PX Mart Free Bear, claiming that one cell phone alone suffices for the job, luring people in. However, when they actually call the number. “The number you dialed is currently not in service.”

Elsewhere, another social media platform uses Foodpanda to recruit delivery persons, but the contact number is also unreachable. Scam methods keep changing where even now famous brands are being misused by impostors. When people see that, will they fall for it? 

Ms. Liang, Citizen: “Because PX Mart is very common and reputable, there are bound to be people who believe it.”

Mr. Lee, Citizen: “Probably, because upon a glance it looks real.”

These types of Internet scam usually claims flexible work hours, no outdoor work required, and easy work without requiring prior experience, while luring people to switch over from Facebook to LINE for further consultation, step-by-step pushing victims into a deep scam abyss.

Yen Ming-kuan, Division Assistant, Crime Prevention Affairs, Criminal Investigation Bureau: “After verification by the police, these stores reveal that they never placed such job ads. This is a typical scam.”

Summer is the most popular hiring season for students to seek part-time jobs. Fraud ring target youths who are eager to look for a gig to make some small money. Police remind the public that these illegal groups aim for your account number, so must be mindful that you may not only lose your savings but may also become a scam accomplice.

 

 

 

直搗犯罪據點,多位民眾被囚禁,當場逮捕4名嫌犯。原來詐騙集團在臉書高薪徵才,把被害人騙來面試,逼迫交付存摺,還控制人身自由。困在台北市大同區,不能隨意離開。

台北市大同分局建成所所長黃冠希說明:「警方訊後,全案依妨害自由罪、詐欺等、強制罪,移送台灣士林地方檢察署偵辦。」

臉書招聘陷阱多,現在更有詐團,打著蝦皮LOGO,自製徵才影片,說是論件計酬,保障每單500元起跳,有意者私訊了解。另外,也有的放上全聯福利熊,說一支手機就能兼差,吸引民眾,不過實際撥打電話並無法取得聯繫,「您撥的號碼暫停使用。」

另外一個社群平台,放上招牌外送平台吉祥物胖胖達,招募居家派單員,但電話一樣打不通。詐騙手法一再變化,如今也出現冒名徵才,偽裝成知名品牌,民眾看到,會上當嗎?

民眾梁小姐說:「因為全聯很普遍,然後就是還滿大的,所以可能就是有人會相信吧。」

民眾李先生也認為:「可能會喔,因為乍看之下很像真的。」

這類網路詐騙,典型套路往往打著,工時彈性、不用外出,工作輕鬆免經驗,更把受害人從臉書導向加LINE洽談,一步步推向詐騙深淵。

刑事局預防科警務正顏銘寬說:「警方查證之後,這些店家表示,沒有刊登過這種徵才缺人的廣告,這是標準的詐騙。」

恰逢暑假打工旺季,瞄準年輕人急著找工作、賺點零用錢的心態。警方提醒,不法集團要的是你的存款帳號,小心最後損失的,不只積蓄,還可能淪為詐欺共犯。
