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.
