Two men in Da Nang have been arrested and prosecuted for fraudulent appropriation of properties under a provisional warrant issued by Da Nang Police.

The two arrests were Tran Kim Hung, 28, and Nguyen Duy Phuong, 26, both from Quang Tri Province.   

At 10:00pm on April 22, patrol officers stopped Tran Kim Hung while riding a motorbike due to his suspicious behaviour, and he was found with many documents showing signs of fraudulent appropriation of money from many facebook users.

Immediately, he was taken to a police station for further investigation. Hung confessed that he colluded with Nguyen Duy Phuong to perform the fraudulent act through facebook which is a free social networking website.

They were found guilty of misappropriation of money.

In February 2022, Phuong and Hung came to Da Nang from Quang Tri Province to live in rented housing in Hoa Thuan Tay Ward, Hai Chau District. From here, they discussed together on using social networks to create fake Facebook accounts or intentionally use another person's name to trick victims into transferring money.

Phuong and Hung opened many fraudulent bank accounts online to get appropriated money, and the value of the property embezzled was close to VND 139.7 million.

They are still under police investigation
