2 Taiwanese nationals face cybercrime case

By |


MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Wednesday filed with the Department of Justice a criminal complaint against two Taiwanese nationals allegedly involved in cybercrimes.

Suspects Wu Shau Wei and Hao Chen are facing a complaint for violation of Republic Act 8484 or the Access Device Act for using a gateway machine that converts international calls to local calls.

The two were arrested Tuesday at the Pacific Village in Muntinlupa.

The police conducted the operation upon the complaint of Globe Telecom which traced the use of their line for suspects’ scheme.

People who want to call abroad will pay the suspects instead of the telecom company for cheaper long distance calls.

    Only in the Philippines that VOIP is illegal, and it is for this reason that outgoing calls were very expensive compared to other countries in SEA and the rest of the world… Why it is LEGAL in other countries (90%) and why it is ILLEGAL in the Philippines???

    • sam_aquino

      i did not know VOIP is being used in the phils, but why use it & still pay, even at a low cost when you can skype free of cost, not to mention the video???

      & their reception is not that good, actually… 

      have a good day, : )

      Pag hindi kikita ang telco, illegal yun, pero pag kikita ang telco, legal yun. Ganyan ang telco industry dito sa Pilipinas, puro mga gahaman, pangit naman ang serbisyo. Wala ring magagawa ang mga subscriber dahil hawak ng mga telco sa bayag ang mga government officials.
