Foreign students receive classes on online fraud prevention
Foreign students recently attended a special lecture by prosecutors from the Jing’an District People’s Procuratorate to learn how to protect themselves from telecommunications and internet fraud, prosecutors said Tuesday.
About 100 students from the International Department of Shanghai Jincai High School attended the lecture in the school’s gymnasium.
Prosecutor Ruan Xiaoyu briefly introduced China’s prosecutorial system, then carefully explained the tricks of making time jobs and online friends in student loan processing, online shopping, online loans, and so on, using real-life cases and two easy-to-understand cartoons.
Ruan also gave many tips on how not to fall into the trap of a fraudster.
After the lecture, the prosecutors distributed a full English version of the anti-fraud pamphlet translated by the Shanghai People’s Procuratorate to the students.
The prosecutors and students then went to the school library, where they sat together, to discuss and exchange ideas about fraudulent methods and how to escape them.
Shanghai’s Education Commission, prosecutors and the Public Security Bureau signed a memorandum on September 2nd pledging to work together to eliminate telecommunications and internet fraud on campus.
