45 Taiwan fraud suspects deported from Davao, Philippines

45 Taiwan fraud suspects deported from the Philippines

Updated Saturday, June 9, 2012 0:04 am TWN, CNA

Forty-five Taiwanese nationals suspected of taking part in two Philippines-based telephone fraud rings were deported from the country and sent back to Taiwan yesterday after being caught in mid-April.

The suspects, who were arrested immediately after arriving at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, will be subject to a criminal investigation.
The 45 were among 72 Taiwanese nationals and six Chinese suspects who were arrested in Davao on April 18 after Taiwanese and Filipino police raided three of their suspected operating bases.
An initial investigation showed that members of the rings, led by two Taiwanese surnamed Lu and Huang, posed as judicial personnel, local officials or call center employees to coax or intimidate victims into wiring money into the swindlers' accounts.
Police from Taiwan and the Philippines wanted the suspects, mostly between the ages of 20 and 30, to be charged with illegally using communication devices, violating an e-commerce law and illegally possessing guns after they seized guns, computers, and communications devices at their hideouts.
