In telecoms frauds, scammers often use overseas servers to make scam calls to their victims 

Cambodia on July 6 sent home 74 Chinese nationals wanted in China on suspicion of extorting money from people in China over the internet and by telephone.

The deportees, including 21 women, were arrested on July 1 by Cambodian authorities during simultaneous raids on 12 locations in Phnom Penh city, Kandal province and Kampot province, said Major General Ouk Hai Seila, chief of the investigation and procedure department at the Cambodian General Department of Immigration.

A number of telephones and laptops were seized during the crackdowns, he added.

They were suspected of using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol, a type of internet phone service) from Cambodia to threaten and extort money from victims in China, he said.

In telecoms frauds, scammers often use overseas servers to make scam calls to their victims in China, claiming to be court or police officials, noting that the victims' bank accounts had been breached, so they have to transfer the money to a separate safe account.

Seila said the raids were launched following a request from the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia.

More than 500 fraud suspects had been deported to China over recent years.
