Fraudulent operators used well-known land casino brands to attract punters.

Police in the Guangdong province of China report that a year-long investigation has led to the breakup of a fraudulent online gambling ring that illegally used well-known land casino brands to atract customers to its websites.

The investigation, triggered by an informant in March 2015, resulted in the arrest of 218 suspects, including 11 core members from Fujian province, in a case that police claim involved taking 140 million yuan (US$21.6 million) from over 1,000 victims in 11 cities across the country.

Security officials in Foshan received the initial report, and discovered two fake online gaming websites scamming victims in the names of Macau casinos and issuing gaming messages via a "malicious base station."

Subsequent investigations uncovered servers registered in Cambodia. Working in collaboration with the Cambodian police, the investigators dismantled five illegal telecommunications and Internet establishments, along with four "fake base stations" after taking action in 18 cities on the Chinese mainland, the police reported this week.
