The scammers contact the Chinese immigrants through the phone. They communicate in Mandarin or Cantonese and claim to be Chinese authorities or employees of Canadian Immigration. The scammers then informs the immigrants that they have intercepted a parcel with the name and address of the victim. They might add that the parcel contains many fake passports. Alternatively, they also claim that the bank account of the victim has been compromised and utilized for criminal activities. They ask for personal information that is used to commit fraud. Or they claim the immigrant has misfiled papers and must pay for their mistake immediately with a credit card, via ATM bitcoin, or by giving them your bank login information. The caller is hostile and often threatens the immigrant with police action in Canada or against their families in China.
