The Chinese Embassy in Cambodia posted a notice on its website on Wednesday reminding Chinese citizens of the Southeast Asian country to stay away from online gambling syndicates.

Recently, a number of Chinese citizens were illegally detained and held for ransom after being lured to Cambodia by scam organizations, believing in false advertisements of “high salaries” for job vacancies.

Thanks to the rapid response of the victims’ families and coordination with the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, law enforcement agencies in China and Cambodia took prompt action and successfully rescued the victims.

The Chinese Embassy in Cambodia has once again reminded Chinese citizens to come to Cambodia through official channels and avoid falling into the trap of scam artists who promise overnight gains.

The embassy also reminded Chinese citizens to report to the Chinese and Cambodian police as soon as possible if they are in danger or if their personal freedom is restricted. When filing an emergency report or call, the embassy said, it is important to provide as much information as possible, so that a timely rescue can be arranged.

Chinese authorities have partnered with Southeast Asian countries to strengthen joint law enforcement and crackdown on criminal activities such as cross-border internet fraud and illegal online gambling for many years. , according to the media. Due to China’s crackdown on fraud, online gambling and other illegal industries, many criminals have turned to Southeast Asian countries with relatively loose regulations.

The Chinese government has always stressed the importance of complying with the laws and regulations of local countries when it comes to Chinese companies or individuals traveling abroad for business or work. China does not support any illegal business involvement of companies or individuals in foreign countries.

Besides Cambodia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Laos and other Southeast Asian countries have worked closely with the Chinese government to crack down on overseas internet crimes.
