In the indictment released on Monday, Yilan District Prosecutors’ Office said the ring leader surnamed Chan was deported back to Taiwan because he had been involved in several fraud cases overseas. However, he went back to the old practice of telecom scams, the indictment said. In April, he rented a high-priced farm house in Wujie Township, Yilan County to serve as an operation room, and recruited many workers to engage in telecom fraud operation targeting Chinese, the indictment said.
The ring members had all three meals inside the house, and they rarely went out to avoid being noticed, according to the indictment. [FULL STORY]
