No wonder crime rates came down there are thousands of Taiwanese criminals overseas!


#145

I think there is a fair amount of truth in that.

If they really are guilty, may they rot in an Indonesian prison for the next 20 years. I will not be shedding tears for them.


#149

Why were they acquitted in Kenya? Why not guilty if they were guilty?


#150

Kenya, Malaysia, Thailand, and now probably the Philippines, where China has its money in, China can get you deported out.


#151

You forgot Armenia that deported a whopping 78 Taiwanese to China in September.


#152

Jeez Taiwanese get around!
That must the total population of Taiwanese residents of Armenia thrown out in one go!

Nigerians eat your heart out, you’ve got a competitor.


#153

Isn’t it sad, though? In Nigeria, cheating in ingrained as part of the culture and an econmic need: it is considered a viable form of earning a living where there is little else. Hence, we may conclude so many Taiwanese find a career in cheating people as the best way to survive. Because having to spilt profits among so many teammembers means no one is really hitting the jackpot. I wonder if like with drug cartels, there is some boss in a plush Xinyi apartment getting the lion’s share, well connected to local politicians he supports economically, otherwise well respected in the community.

From Australia via Indonesia, Malaysia all the way to Turkey, Taiwan crime syndicates have long been putting Go South into action.

The safe haven principle for phone scammers is under attack.

Now moving to the EU in the hope of not getting sent to China when caught?


#157

The global scale and sophistication of these criminals operations is impressive.


#158

My question is: are there that many crooks in Taiwan? I mean, 50 caught here, 50 there … they will run out of recruits soon!

And yes, the scope is … staggering.


#159

It’s in the thousands now. It seems China has been systematically hunting them down.
Their days of running these scams in this form are coming to a close. Crime certainly does not pay for the foot soldiers.


#160

Any chance of catching the head of the dragon? I mean, it is going to be very ironic if it is some government official sitting pretty in Beijing or Shanghai… or Taipei. But actually expected.
