Eight people suspected of involvement in a cross-border telecommunications fraud operation have been arrested in police raids of three call centers in Taichung, the Criminal Investigation Bureau said on Monday.

The bureau said that it received a report about two months ago about alleged cross-border telecom fraud call centers established by an organization led by a 39-year-old man surnamed Chen (陳).

The organization was allegedly defrauding people in China by having callers pose as public security officials to persuade them to part with their money, it said.

The bureau, in conjunction with police in New Taipei City and Taichung, formed a task force to investigate, it added.    [FULL  STO-RY]
