The fraud's story goes like this: call a victim pretending to be one of staff of the Consulate by misappropriating the phone number 403-264 3322 via VoIP phones, claiming with an automated message in mandarin that the Consulate has got an important document that requires the victim's name, phone number and other information. Then victim will be told that his/her bank credit card was stolen and he/she was involved in a major crimes in China. The victim will then be questioned by someone through phone from a so-called Chinese public security department which is totally fake. The victim even can "really see" an arrest warrant with his/her name on it by logging on false website.
