HA NOI (VNS)— A group of four was arrested on Monday for using cell phone cards to commit high-tech fraud.

Truong Van Chi and Nguyen Tuan Anh, 23, Tran Xuan Hung, 20, and Nguyen Thi Xuan, 57, all from the north-central province of Ha Tinh, admitted to posing as staff of the Ha Noi-based telecom group Viettel and officials of the Ha Noi Department of Transport and Department of Taxation to convince their victim that he had won a promotion.

They told him he had won a motorbike as well as VND137 million (US$6,500) and asked him to buy cell phone cards worth VND10.5 million ($505) and send them the serials, which they later sold. — VNS
