International students receive lessons on Internet fraud prevention
International students attend a lecture on protection against telecommunications and internet fraud, delivered by prosecutors from the Jing’an District People’s Prosecutor’s Office.
Foreign students recently attended a special lecture by prosecutors from the Jing’an District People’s Prosecutor’s Office, where they learned how to protect themselves from telecommunications and internet fraud, prosecutors revealed on Tuesday.
About 100 students from Shanghai Jincai High School International Division attended a lecture at the school’s gymnasium.
Prosecutor Ruan Xiaoyu briefly introduced the Chinese prosecution system and then, using real cases as well as some easy-to-understand caricatures, thoroughly explained the scams that can occur in the processing of student loans, online shopping, online loans, semi-working time and online friendships.
Ruan also shared many tips on how to avoid falling into the trickster’s trap.
After the lecture, the prosecution sent out a full English version of the anti-fraud brochure, translated by the Shanghai People’s Public Prosecutor’s Office, to the students.
Prosecutors and students then went to the school library, where they sat down together to discuss and exchange views on the fraudulent methods and ways of escaping them.
The Shanghai Education Commission, Prosecutors and the Public Security Office signed a memorandum on September 2 pledging to jointly tackle telecommunications and internet fraud on campus.
Prosecutors communicate with students in the school library after the lecture.
