Cyber crime suspects used Indonesia as operation base: Police group of Chinese and Taiwanese cyber crime suspects nabbed by the National Police allegedly set up their operational base in Indonesia to dupe victims in China, a police spokesman said on Thursday.

The National Police nabbed 170 Chinese and Taiwanese citizens from 10 locations in and around Jakarta for alleged cyber crimes.

The suspects had chosen Indonesia as their base of operation, National Police deputy spokesman Sr. Comr. Boy Rafli Amar said, adding that the victims of their scheme, however, were in China.

The National Police reportedly arrested the suspects at the request of the Chinese and Taiwanese police.

Boy said that the suspects conned their victims by “pretending to represent a service company related to the investment”.

“The victims then sent money to the suspects,” he said, adding that there were no reports of victims from Indonesia.

“We have not received data on the number of victims or the losses incurred,” he said.
