  Fraud cases against the elderly are always emerging. The reason why criminals focus on the elderly is that they don’t know enough about social development information and common fraud methods, and their ability to prevent fraud is lower than that of people of other ages.

  Recently, many "new old people" have emerged in online celebrity, who are themselves silver-haired old people. By revealing the scams set for the elderly and imparting anti-fraud knowledge and means, they have gained the attention and praise of middle-aged and elderly people. The public security department can also cooperate with these elderly online celebrity to improve the elderly’s anti-fraud awareness and ability while increasing the publicity of new media platforms.

  "New old age" online celebrity focuses on revealing scams

  More and more old people come to the stage to record their lives. online celebrity, an old man, has not only become a new "source of happiness" for young people, but also taught anti-fraud knowledge through entertaining performances like family members.

  Online celebrity, an elderly woman named "Detective Aunt" on the Tik Tok, focuses on uncovering old people’s scams. Her head is a silver-haired old lady with a fan. Eyes are the pure big eyes of a beautiful girl warrior, but she is not pure at all. She is a wily aunt. Her scam video attracted more than 11.12 million likes and more than 2.44 million fans.

  At the top of the "detective aunt" is a bad short video that helps the uncle to look after the children and steal them. The commentary is simple: "divert attention" and "recognize relatives" are the usual routines of traffickers! This video has the most likes and comments, with 2.77 million likes and 60,000 comments. Recently, the suspect "Mei Yi" who abducted nine children was attacked by netizens on the online platform, and the short video made by "Detective Aunt" undoubtedly reminded the elderly to be vigilant while taking care of their children, so that they could always pay attention to their children!

  Another reasoning video of "Detective Aunt" demonstrates the play that Su Daqiang always fell in love with in "Everything is Fine". In the play, Su Daqiang thinks that he met the "considerate" nanny Cai Genhua and is desperate to marry the nanny. However, what Cai Genhua covets is Su Daqiang’s real estate. This reasoning video of "Detective Aunt" has a simple annotation: seemingly sweet love is actually a well-designed script. The old man was coaxed by the young woman and forced by emotional pressure, saying, "I’ll give you all my bankbooks tonight." On the spot, "Detective Aunt" poked two young women’s "pig-killing plate" investment in the elderly and warned the elderly not to be deceived by swindlers. I can’t help but remind people that on April 21 this year, Jia Laobo, an 80-year-old family with children in Wuzhong, Suzhou, gave a property to a nanny who took care of himself in the form of a book legacy. Netizens talk about it in succession, which is the true feelings nurtured by meticulous care, but some people say that this is another typical trick to defraud the elderly.

  Nowadays, many fraudulent means seem seamless, but many tricks appear repeatedly. The reason why they succeed repeatedly is mainly to grasp the shortcomings of the elderly, such as emotional lack, attention to health, insufficient awareness of prevention, and one-sided knowledge reserve. Here, remind the elderly that if they encounter such things, they should first think calmly. "There will be no pie in the sky." As long as they are treated with caution, many tricks will be seen through.

  There are five types of new scams that need to be guarded against.

  On November 22nd, Tian Xingjun, a community policeman from Jimei Police Station in Xiamen, Fujian Province, successfully stopped a winning fraud against the elderly. On the same day, the police visited the community, and suddenly an 80-year-old Mr. Wang Lao stopped him and asked for help to verify the number. Surprisingly, when the police asked about the use of the number, Mr. Wang prevaricated and told the truth after being enlightened. It turned out that Mr. Wang received a letter containing a lottery ticket for health care products. "I scraped the lottery ticket and found myself winning 1 million yuan." Mr. Wang immediately contacted the so-called redemption notary "Wang Juan" on the lottery ticket. The other party said that the premise is that the notary fee of 20,000 yuan and personal income tax should be paid to the designated bank card on the same day. Mr. Wang prepared to remit money, but fortunately, the community police stopped him, which saved his property from loss. Mr. Wang suddenly realized that he had bought the company’s health care products. After the salesman asked for personal information, he also told the company that there were activities in the near future, indicating that he would inform the elderly to participate. "I am also convinced because of such a premise." Such new tricks are not uncommon. Criminals use psychological hints to cheat the elderly frequently.

  In daily life, all kinds of fraud methods for the elderly need to be guarded against. To sum up, there are the following categories:

  Deception 1: "God doctor" fraud. Fraudsters flaunt themselves as "magic doctors" who can cure all diseases and promote the so-called "all-purpose magic medicine", just like the fraud case in which "Shaolin monks" promote "magic medicine".

  Scam 2: "free travel" fraud. Attracting the attention of the elderly with "free travel" is actually just a cover. What is important is to bring the elderly to the pre-arranged site, match them with famous doctors and lecturers, boast in an all-round way, and fool the elderly into buying thousands of so-called "health care products", just like the fraud case of "filial piety in China".

  Scam 3: "seeking change" fraud. This kind of fraud mostly happens to the elderly who set up stalls selling vegetables in the suburbs. The swindlers pretend to buy food from the elderly and lie that they have no change. In the process of finding change, they will take the opportunity to replace the fake money. When the old man found out, the criminals had already escaped.

  Scam 4: "high return" fraud. The fraudsters first rented high-grade office buildings, decorated them carefully, and made up "investment projects" to publicize them everywhere. When old people come to invest and consult, they warmly receive them, and ask so-called experts to explain the industry background and market trend, and lure the old people with high interest rates. At first, short-term investment is allowed. Once the old people invest a lot of money, the office building will be empty.

  Scam 5: "special phone" fraud. Fraudsters call themselves staff members of state organs such as courts and public security bureaus, claiming that the children of the elderly need money to deal with "crimes" in other places, and falsify court "subpoenas" and public security "arrest warrants" to convince the elderly; Or lied that the children of the elderly had a car accident and needed money for treatment. Old people are eager to "save their children" and will quickly remit money.

  Therefore, the public security and other relevant departments should strengthen law enforcement, severely crack down on fraud such as health care for the elderly, investment in pension projects, "unfreezing national assets" and antiques, and enhance the deterrence against criminals. At the same time, we can cooperate with the old online celebrity on the network platform, increase publicity and improve the anti-fraud awareness and ability of the elderly.

  Many old people think that "they cross more bridges and eat more salt than the younger generation", but in a rapidly changing society, new types of fraud are everywhere, and social experience obviously cannot keep up with the changes of the times, so the old people are easily deceived. For the anti-fraud propaganda of the elderly, we need to pay attention to methods, and instilling opinions directly will easily hurt their self-esteem and produce resistance. Just like the short video of "Detective Aunt", there should be more case propaganda. Through deductive display, the old people should be aware of the hidden dangers and realize that their anti-fraud ability is different from that of young people, so as to strengthen communication and discussion with their children and effectively reduce the probability of being cheated.
