According to the China Electronic Commerce Association, there are three types of fraud that have been used to con Internet users, which netizens should keep in mind.

Phishing websites - which create an almost identical or cloned Web page of a trustworthy site, such as Taobao, a major online shopping platform, and Sina Weibo, the most popular micro-blogging website - usually steal the private information of Internet users, such as bank account numbers and passwords.

It lures netizens by releasing false information about big sales, or winning a lottery or prizes.
