The number of filed cases related to telecom and network fraud has decreased for 14 consecutive months since last June, the Ministry of Public Security said on Wednesday.

From April 2021 to July 2022, the police resolved 594,000 telecom and network fraud cases.

It also worked with other departments, including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the People's Bank of China, to give more precise early warnings for such cases and dissuasion for people that may be involved in fraud.

During the period, the National Anti-Fraud Center sent 145 million warnings to people at risk of being deceived, intercepted 2.81 billion fraudulent calls and 3.36 billion text messages and blocked 4 million fraudulent domain names and websites.

The authorities also stopped the payment of 551.8 billion yuan ($81.4 billion) of funds from victims to perpetrators, successfully protecting 109 million people from harm.

Authorities canceled 77.69 million SIM cards at high risk of involvement in fraud and persuaded 230,000 suspects of overseas scams to return to China, causing the number of people who went abroad to commit crimes against Chinese people drop significantly.
