Twenty-two Chinese nationals in Zambia have admitted to cyber crimes.

They are part of 77 suspects arrested in April for running a sophisticated internet fraud scheme, affecting people worldwide, including in Singapore, Peru, and the UAE.

Local Zambians were also recruited as call-centre agents for the scams. The accused worked for Golden Top Support Services in Lusaka.

The company director, Li Xianlin, was charged with operating without a license.

The raid uncovered devices for call masking and over 13,000 SIM cards, highlighting the scheme’s scale.

Sentencing is set for Friday.
