Police on Kinmen have launched a campaign to help military personnel guard against fraud scams and drug abuse, according to a spokesman for the Kinmen county police station. Police officers have been sent to educate personnel and troops stationed at military bases across the island on how to stay alert to burglary, drug abuse and scams by fraud rings, as a growing number of military members have fallen into these kinds of traps set by criminal rings, the spokesman said. He warned military personnel to pay extra attention to fraud scams through telephone or cellphone text messages, or lottery and tax rebate fraud by criminals posing as members of government agencies, such as post, tax and labor insurance offices. Kinmen police are planning to hold 50 seminars on the subject to help combat these crimes to which an increasing number of military personnel have fallen victim, he said.
