Sihanoukville: Chinese puzzle, one arrested, five escape.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

21 August 2017. Sihanoukviile.
As part of the on-going crackdown on internet scammers, a majority of them Chinese nationals, Sihanoukville police raided a rental house in Group 3, Village 2, Sangkat No 3, Sihanoukville at 10:30am on 21 August.

Wonder how much that call cost?

Interesting progression.
The recent busts have been large numbers crammed into a guesthouse, which would raise suspicions as to what they're all doing in there.
In this case, 6 Chinese guys living in a regular house doesn't look too abnormal. Also possible they are hooked up online with other low profile operations dotted around the place ?
Making a killing with online scamming would also explain the huge premiums they're paying for rental accommodation in Snooky. Landlords are loving it.

The police have realised possible free laptops, gadgets and now Lexus's. Lucrative business for them!.
