Police are investigating the third "virtual kidnapping" reported in Vancouver this year, and warning the public to be wary of similar scams.
Officers said Wednesday that the most recent case involves a young woman in her early 20s from Mainland China. The woman is in Canada on a student visa.
She received a call that appeared to come from a phone number associated to an actual Chinese police department, Sgt. Jason Robillard. Scammers used a technique known as "spoofing," a common practice of altering caller ID to disguise where the call is really coming from.
The victim was convinced that she was implicated in a money laundering investigation in China, Robillard said, and that she would have to transfer money to cover police and court costs.

She sent the money, paid through a Bitcoin ATM.
Police said the scammers continued to threaten her with an arrest until she sent more money. She was also convinced to send them "compromising photos," police said, which were then sent to her family members in China through the messaging app WeChat.
Along with the photos, scammers sent messages to the family demanding a ransom, making it look like the woman had been kidnapped. The ransom was paid, and the woman was told that the funds cleared the balance she owed.
She was physically unharmed during the incident.
Vancouver police provided details of the fake kidnapping about a month after [color=rgb(0, 102, 153) !important]issuing a similar warning.



明报


温哥华市警宣布再发生一宗涉及中国留学生的虚拟绑架案,案中受害人相信了假扮中国官员骗徒的话,以为自己被捲入洗黑钱案件,更被骗徒诱拍照片用以勒索在中国的家人,家人被骗走数以十万元计的"赎金"。


温哥华市警昨日公布一宗近期发生的虚拟绑架案,为市警2018年接到的第三宗虚拟绑架案。一名20多岁、持学生签证在温哥华读书的中国女学生,收到讲广东话的骗徒电话,骗徒假冒中国警官,令受害人相信自己捲入有关洗钱的犯罪案调查。
  受害人被指示透过比特币自动柜员机向"中国警方"及"法院"汇款。骗徒之后继续恐吓她,威胁她若不付钱及拍下自己的妥协照片,便会被逮捕。骗徒透过微信将受害人照片发给她在中国的父母,勒索巨额赎金。受害人的父母按要求支付了数以十万元计的赎金,付清她的"所欠余额",所幸受害人并未受任何伤害。
  市警发言人卢比雅(Jason Robillard)表示,勒索电话的来电显示为中国警局电话,这是骗徒常用的欺骗手法。警方相信骗徒本身并不在加国,但还不清楚骗徒如何挑选受害人。市警重案组仍与中国官员及其他警察机构合作调查此类案件。
  卢比雅说,这些可耻的罪行对这些年轻学生及家人产生了巨大的影响。他提醒所有留学生,中国警方不会在加拿大实施拘捕,如果感到疑惑或恐惧,应与本地警方联络,警方会提供帮助。
  温哥华市警正在调查5宗同类案件,2宗仍在调查中,3宗已完成调查。调查人员认为,可能还有更多的受害人尚未报案,并呼吁任何掌握相关讯息的人致电温哥华市警。

温哥华有一名中国女留学生遭遇虚拟绑架骗术 粤语"中国警官"指控洗钱
The latest case is the third reported in Vancouver in the first half of 2018. Police said they know of two other attempts, but they believe there are more that haven't been reported.
The strange extortion scam appears to be targeting young Chinese women who are usually in Canada on a student visa. The scammers are not believed to be located in Canada, and it remains unclear how their victims are chosen, police said.
Calls sometimes appear to come from police, but have also been spoofed so callers seem to be reaching out from the Chinese consulate. In other instances, victims have been convinced to produce fake videos suggesting they've been kidnapped or are the victim of another crime. Women have been told to go to a motel or short-term rental to hide out as the scammers reach out to their families.
"These deplorable crimes are having a huge impact on these young, trusting students, and their families," Robillard said in a statement Wednesday.
"We need to make sure people are aware to prevent them from continuing."
The sergeant reminded all foreign students that Chinese police will not arrest them in Canada, and asked anyone who is confused or scared to contact their local Canadian police department.
"We are here to help," he said.
Anyone with information about the ongoing scam is asked to contact the VPD's Major Crime Section at 604-717-3679, or to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
