(ECNS) -- The Chinese Embassy in Myanmar has rescued several nationals lured by criminal organizations and smuggled into Myawaddy in southeastern Myanmar to engage in telecom fraud on the pretext of “high-salary recruitment”, said the embassy in a notice released on Sunday.
The embassy has issued a notice to remind Chinese citizens to be wary of "high-salary" overseas recruitment ads, warning them to avoid being lured into criminal schemes that could lead to loss of property or life.
“If illegally detained in Myanmar, victims or their families should call the police in China and Myanmar as soon as possible,” the embassy said.
The embassy also published emergency numbers:
Myanmar emergency number: 0095-199
Consular protection of the embassy and consulates in Myanmar: 0095-943209657
