RCMP warns of ‘virtual kidnapping’ scheme

August 12, 2017

The Lower Mainland RCMP is warning the public about a cyber extortion scheme that tricks victims into believing their loved ones have been kidnapped.

While similar schemes are being reported worldwide, the six Lower Mainland incidents appear to be targeted at female Chinese nationals attending schools in the greater Vancouver area.

The RCMP is working with other police agencies on this investigation as well as the RCMP Liaison Officer in China to further investigative efforts in that country. Additionally, the RCMP is in contact with the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Vancouver and the schools which the students are attending.
