Received a call from them, missed it, then got a voicemail saying they have important messages about my visa legality information in the US. Note that this is calling on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, and I am a Taiwanese citizen. So tell them to eat their own scamming shits

Got a call yesterday from this number. The person on the phone claimed he was calling on behalf of the consulate saying my credit card has been discovered in a credit card fraud case and I would be deported if I don't cooperate. I got so scared,so I stayed on the line to be connected to the Shanghai Police Station where the crime was discovered to give an one-hour long recorded deposition. The policeman on the phone then asked me to download an app and said I can follow up on this case by chatting with him directly and asked me to keep our conversation confidential. ALL THESE RED FLAGS, yet I still did everything he said. Finally I cleared my head and called the consulate today and the bank, and both told me it was a scam. I feel incredibly stupid and beyond furious.

Received a call from this number, picked up the call, and it is a Chinese(Mandarin) automated message that I cannot understand. Sounds like a scam from what I've read online.

I got a call too. After pressing 1 a guy said there was a document C0921 sent to me a week ago but did not hear from me and asked me to go to the consulate to pick it up. Additionally, he said it is urgent because the Chinese customs had caught a lady with a fake bank card opened in Beijing bearing my name, suspecting I was involved in criminal activities. Just a lot of bullshit. Scolded the guy and hung up.

Got a voice message in Chinese saying that I need to pick up an important document. Press 1 for this and press 2 for that.

It’s a scam.

This is a scam. I double checked with my friend who knows Chinese. The caller ID is from the consulate office
213-807-8006 (which makes it look real), but I guess some hackers somehow used that caller ID to scam people.

The warning notice on consulate website says many people lost over $10,000 because the number called eventually ask for bank info.

Everyday they receive more than 20 cases of complaints.

The article on the consulate says the scammers were able to use technology to generate consulate phone number to call people.
