AUSTRALIA DEPORTS 15 TAIWANESE PLOTTING TELEPHONE SCAMS

The Taiwan Times on 15th May reported that Australian Border Force (ABF) stopped 15 Taiwanese nationals linked to telephone fraud from entering Australia, all of whom were deported back to Taiwan.  They had their visa cancelled and were extradited back to Taiwan, and were suspected of traveling to Australia to carry out “boiler room” scams.  Australian authorities also identified another 20 Taiwanese nationals who were about to travel to Australia to take part in the scheme.
