Myanmar Hands Over Mob Bosses in Cyber-Fraud Bust


Myanmar authorities have transferred 10 suspects accused of being involved in organized cyber fraud, money laundering, and human trafficking in Myanmar and Mekong to the Chinese government.

Included in the list of the accused are the heads of three well-known crime families.

In December, China’s Ministry of Public Security released a wanted list specifically targeting members of “family crime syndicates” that prey on Chinese citizens on its border. They do this using “pig butchering scams” or frauds that develop a connection with individuals, only to turn on them by offering fake investments.
