More than 300 in Cambodia could be victims of fraud

Of the 4,679 Taiwanese who have traveled to Cambodia over the past year and did not return, 306 might be victims of fraud or human trafficking, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said on Monday.

The bureau based its findings on interviews with family members or contacts of Taiwanese who did not return from the Southeast Asian country.
