(PLO)- Detecting and strictly handling acts of using tricks to attack people’s feelings for personal gain not only protect people’s assets, but further contribute to preserving the moral, emotional and belief standards of children. People.
A few days ago, I went to the bank to update new information on my account. Welcoming me was a middle-aged, kind-hearted employee. While performing services for me, her cell phone rang. On the other end of the line, a hurried voice informed that her daughter had fallen and suffered a traumatic brain injury at school and was being taken to the hospital for emergency surgery, requiring urgent surgery. The man asked her to immediately transfer 50 million dong as the initial cost of the major surgery.
She burst into tears and, as a natural inclination of motherly love, entered the amount to deposit into the account number provided. Fortunately, her colleagues stopped her and asked the man to give her name, hospital address, and the team that was preparing to perform the operation. Seeing the movement, the other end of the line hung up, leaving the mother’s heart extremely worried.

Calming down, she called the school to find out that her child was healthy. Everything seems to have passed through a dream, but her money could be lost without the intervention of her colleagues.
Scams are never new, but never old either. Not new because its purpose always hits the gullibility of people to appropriate property. However, it also never gets old because the tricks are getting more and more sophisticated. If in the past, the trick was used to hit people’s greed, now, the metamorphosis appears when it hits the boundless love of parents for their children.
Obviously, tricks such as “receiving gifts from abroad”, “collecting lost gold together”… are still usable somewhere, but soon become obsolete. Wise people have difficulty, so many people do not fall for the trick because there is nothing that naturally falls from the sky. For those who are attached to this donkey, they also suck on the sweet soap, because greed is deep. However, with today’s new tricks, the person who performed it was really too callous.
In life, the love of parents for their children is an objective necessity. Mother’s love, father’s love, but beyond that, human love for each other is a sacred thing that no pen can describe. Therefore, when there is a problem, many people cannot calmly consider to distinguish between black and white. Hitting a parent’s love for their child to profit is a bad practice, very condemnable.
Both are illegal, but the trick of hitting the victim’s greed is still something less inhuman than the trick of hitting the intimacy. Because of greed and being deceived, it is difficult for victims to complain because they themselves know how to open their mouths. Public opinion can feel pity but not pity because it is the wrong choice of the victim. However, because of their friendship, being deceived is clearly worthy of attention and protection. And it is never wrong for people to choose friendship to protect and protect. Public opinion also cannot be ignored because if ignored, the next victim may be yourself or your family members.
Grandparents have a saying “too angry to lose wisdom”, now please allow me to correct it a bit as “too quick to lose wisdom”. Although knowing that the heart has its own reasons, sometimes reason cannot win, but still expect parents to be careful. Instead of transferring money immediately, calmly confirm and verify the information. The golden time in medicine is measured in hours, not seconds, so a few seconds faster is not a decisive solution.
The scammer, claiming to be a teacher, easily picks up parents’ pockets with the trick of “hospitalization” also because parents do not call the school or homeroom teacher to verify. Therefore, regular interaction between parents and the school, in addition to better coordination in educating students, can also avoid this kind of fraud.
On the State side, in addition to propagandizing and disseminating the law, warning of sophisticated tricks, the police agency needs to take a drastic action, track down and bring to light criminals. Obviously the contact phone numbers, the account numbers that receive the money transfer are present and completely traceable.
Although it may be difficult, if determined, the authorities will do it, of course, people who place an order with the police department must do it. By detecting and strictly handling the act of using tricks to hit the family for profit, not only to protect people’s assets, but further to contribute to preserving the moral standards, feelings and beliefs of the people. human.
