New scam targeting Chinese students

It has been brought to the attention of UCA that there is a new scam circulating, targeting Chinese students. This scam is a phone call claiming to be from the Assembly of China and accuses the student of money laundering crimes.

The scam is extremely sophisticated in that the scammer simply asks for personal bank account details. The student will then receive a link that takes them to a fake website where they need to input a case ID number. The website displays the students' ID card photo which gives it a very authentic look. Once the student has logged in with the case ID number, funds are withdrawn from the students' bank account.

Please keep safe and be vigilant with calls from unknown numbers!
