HA NOI (VNS) — The hi-tech Crime Prevention Police Department (PC50) has detained a 23-year-old man for reportedly swindling people of VND3 billion (US$137,600) by claiming to provide various types of fake diplomas.
The police said Tran Tien Dat, from Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, used the Internet and social media to publicise information that he could make fake diplomas.
He did not make the diplomas, but still tricked people into sending him money through bank accounts. The youth also created a Facebook page about his services and used various phone numbers and fake identity cards.
Dat often visited Internet cafes in the area of Nghia Thanh commune, Chau Duc District, to lure more people.
The case is being investigated further. — VNS
