Wechat official announced yesterday (19) that since 2019, 45,000 counterfeit and fraudulent public numbers have been cracked down, including counterfeit official customer service, official telephone, official express claims and other public numbers. When counterfeit and fraudulent accounts are discovered, they will be permanently banned.
In an interview with the media, Ms. Hangzhou Civil Reserve said that recently, she received a short message from a self-proclaimed "Vehicle Management Institute", telling her that her vehicle will be inspected annually and need to be processed through the Internet, and that she would pay attention to a public number called "Zhejiang Vehicle Management Institute" for online payment. "Let me lose," Ms. Chu said.Mobile phoneNumber, ID number, and card number, password. Finally, let me wait for the verification code to be sent. He transferred the money from my card in two strokes. It happened to be on my card, and he was done with it."
Civilian police investigation found that the so-called public number is counterfeit, and its head and name are similar to the regular corporate public number, which is difficult for the public to distinguish. Illegal elements usually induce users to enter the website links provided by the public numbers through these high imitation public numbers, so as to defraud them.
In addition to Zhejiang, there are similar cases of high imitation official account fraud in other places. Police Officer Bai Jiexin of Quanzhou Anti-Fraud Center in Fujian Province told reporters that there are about 30 similar cases in Quanzhou this year. "A citizen in Quanzhou received a text message from a strange number saying that his annual vehicle inspection was about to expire and that he could conduct an annual review on an official account. He searched for an official account called 'Fujian vehicle Annual Inspection' based on the text message. He noticed that the official account was not certified. The citizen was induced to operate on a website, entered a bank card and password, and then found that his account balance had been transferred. "
So, how do these high imitation public numbers get registered? According to the survey, according to the different subjects of registration, Wechat public number is divided into personal number and enterprise number. The process of registration of public number for personal registration is simple, and registration can be completed by simply filling in some information. The public numbers that need to be certified need information such as licenses of institutions or enterprises. Enterprise numbers can get more permissions, and even open payment channels.
Reporter search found that Wechat platform can find a number of seemingly "official" public numbers such as "scanner payment assistant", "365 payment assistant", "Moving Zone 10086". Click on the details of these public numbers to find out that they are personal numbers without relevant business qualifications.
Police officer Bai reminds users that when identifying the authenticity of public numbers, they can use the method of inquiring whether the public numbers are certified by enterprises to judge whether the public numbers are reliable.
Although the application of the enterprise number is difficult, but on the ecommerce platform, the reporter found that there are also many merchants who sell the enterprise number. Some businesses claim to be able to register and certify the official account. The reporter randomly asked one of the merchants. The other side said that the price of the official account for sale is basically about 200 yuan. Merchants said: "you want to register good quality at least more than 200 yuan, are real names, to ensure that they are stable, can receive money, certainly can open the payment." The cheap one has no function, you can't collect money, you can't do anything. "
Personal number is easy to carry out fraud, enterprise number also has certain security risks. In response, on September 19 th, WeChat officials said they would resolutely crack down on such violations.
