  Like to follow suit

  Young people who are inexperienced are easy to be recruited.

  After analyzing the above-mentioned cases, Changzhou police found that most of the targets targeted by criminal suspects are young people who are inexperienced, have poor preventive ability, like novelty and like to follow suit.

  In terms of the modus operandi of these fraud cases, criminals take advantage of the victim’s curiosity and greed, and constantly attract fans through the newly popular "Tik Tok", "Aauto Quicker" and "Watermelon Video" apps, asking the deceived to pay by scanning the QR code, issuing red envelopes, transferring money, etc. Once the money is defrauded, the victim will be blacked out immediately.
