Foreign students recently attended a special lecture given by prosecutors from the Jing’an District People’s Procuratorate, where they learned how to guard against telecommunications and internet fraud, prosecutors revealed on Tuesday.
About 100 students from the international division of Shanghai Jincai High School attended the lecture in the school gymnasium.
Prosecutor Ruan Xiaoyu briefly introduced China’s prosecution system, and then, using real cases as well as two easy-to-understand cartoons, carefully explained the scams that can occur when processing student loans, online shopping, online loans, part-time jobs and making friends online.
Ruan also shared many tips on how to avoid falling into a crook’s trap.
After the conference, prosecutors distributed a full English version of the anti-fraud brochure translated by the Shanghai People’s Procuratorate among the students.
Prosecutors and students then proceeded to the school library, where they gathered to discuss and exchange views on the fraudulent methods and ways to escape them.
The Shanghai Education Commission, prosecutors and the public security bureau signed a memorandum on September 2, pledging to jointly eliminate telecommunications and internet fraud on campus.
