About 400 Chinese involved in online gambling ring in Hai Phong

Police and competent forces in the northern port city of Hai Phong have busted an international online gambling ring involved about 400 Chinese nationals. 

They raided the Our City residential complex on Pham Van Dong Street, Hai Thanh ward, Hai Phong city’s Duong Kinh district on July 27, and found hundreds of gambling machines installed in several buildings in the complex. 

Preliminary investigations showed that online transactions, worth more than 3 billion CNY (435.51 million USD), were carried out through different activities like sports betting and illegal lottery. 

Police confiscated nearly 2,000 smartphones, 530 computers, bank cards, cash and other relevant objects and documents at the site. 

The ring members, aged from 18-24, came to Vietnam as tourists and received around 3,000 CNY (435 USD) each month. 

The case is under further investigation.
