Refund of money in case of fraudulent transfers to Wechat

The first thing to do in case of WeChat fraud is to contact the Public Security Bureau to report the crime as soon as possible and file a complaint with the WeChat security system.


The WeChat Security Center takes fraudulent accounts seriously after verification. In addition to billing complaints, online alerts can also be filed through the WeChat mini-program.


The public security authorities will then open a case for investigation and hold the violator legally accountable. If the transfer via WeChat was fraudulent, you must immediately contact the police and the possibility of a refund depends on the specific circumstances.


Interested parties should provide all possible evidence to the public security authorities, keep all items, information, contact details, etc. related to the case, and actively cooperate with and assist the public security authorities in solving the case.
