Raising vigilance to prevent impersonation of soldiers, agencies and units of the military
The Department of Information and Communications has issued a dispatch
requesting agencies, units and localities to promote awareness in prevention of
impersonation of soldiers, agencies and units of the military.
according to the Political Department of Military Region 7, recently, in the
area of the Armed Forces of the Military Region, there have been a number of
impersonators, impersonating officers of a number of units under the Military
Command of Dong Nai, Lam Dong and Tay Ninh provinces committed acts of fraud
and appropriation of property, thereby causing frustration and misunderstanding
among the people, affecting the reputation and image of the Army and the
Military Region 7.
methods and tricks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, diverse, and
carried out openly. To build trust among the people, the suspects took
advantage of the image and reputation of the Army and used telecommunication
networks (calling, texting), social networks (Facebook, Zalo, Telegram, Tiktok
...) to spread false information. Due to the lack of vigilance and precautions
of some businesses, organizations, and individuals, criminals can easily
defraud and misappropriate or cause property damage. In the arear under
management of the Military Region alone, from /072023 until now, there have
been 10 incidents.
is predicted that in the coming time, bad suspects will continue to use similar
tricks to fraudulent, appropriate and damage property of businesses and people
in the area. To contribute to preventing and raising vigilance against the
above tricks, the Political Department of Military Region 7 recommends that
agencies, businesses and the people when receiving calls from strangers
claiming to be "soldiers, agencies, units of the Army, local Military
Command" to book parties, buy goods... it is needed to find out and verify
information before conducting any transaction; If there is any suspiciousness, it
should immediately report to the nearest military or police agency for timely
guidance and resolution.

family member working in the Army to inform about situations related to
violations of the law and discipline of the person; at the same time, request
to transfer money to compensate for damages...., it is needed to stay calm and
carefully research and verify information; Do not follow the requests of bad
subjects, especially do not transfer money to designated accounts of subjects
or groups of subjects for any reason. Promptly discuss by phone with the
commander and manager of the unit where the person is working; contact the
Military Command at the commune, ward or district level for assistance in
verifying information and avoiding fraud that causes property damage.
"suspects" wearing Army uniforms, with signs of "suggesting that
they have the ability to apply for a job, enroll to army school, join the Army Force...",
people need to be careful to find out; promptly discuss by phone with the
Military Command at the commune, ward or district level and the nearest police
