The arrests come as the Southeast Asian countries crack down on Chinese cyber crime using web technology to target citizens from abroad. Cambodia has reported hundreds of Chinese telephone and internet fraudsters this last year including 74 Chinese accused of running an online extortion racket. Last week another 31 fraud suspects including Taiwanese were arrested. Another 44 people from China and Taiwan were arrested in Thailand last month for running an elaborate phone scam connecting US$3 million (RM12.85 million) from scores of victims, mainly based in China.
