The name, age, gender, parent phone number, city and other information were all at a glance. The number is more than 2 million.
At the beginning of January this year, the Gulou Public Security Bureau of Xuzhou City discovered that residents of a community in its jurisdiction had established a network technology company, and a large number of calls were made every day, and the situation was suspicious.
After investigation, it was found that this company bought children’s personal information online at a price of 6 cents to 1 cent, and then recruited more than a dozen telephone operators to do external telemarketing, and dialed the parents one by one to recruit students for some educational institutions.
