According to media reports, Mr. Huang of Nanjing wanted a loan but suffered a liar. After using WeChat to transfer the swindler to nearly 5,000 yuan, he accidentally received an Alipay call when the liar instructed to transfer another 5,000 yuan. It turned out that the former liar induced Mr. Huang to transfer money in Alipay, was intercepted by Alipay security system, and then Alipay called to remind, Mr. Huang has not answered.
It is understood that in mid-July, Alipay took the lead in launching the “Wake Up Hotline” in the industry: when the risk of fraud is identified, it will not only block the transaction, but also actively call the user to reveal the risk of the scam and prevent users from being defrauded through other channels. This service is currently available to users over the age of 50.
Deeply deceived people tend to be “fascinated by the authorities”. Like Mr. Huang, after the risk trading is intercepted, they will also transfer multiple platforms to try to transfer funds. The police said that this is a typical fake loan fraud case. The formal loan platform will not charge any fees before the loan, and the basic transfer can be directly identified as fraud.
