The first group of 10 people were repatriated on Saturday and the remaining 67 are due to be sent back on Wednesday, the Ministry of Public Security confirmed.
In recent years, syndicates led by Taiwanese citizens and based in Southeast Asia, Africa and Oceania have been falsely presenting themselves as law enforcement officers to extort money from people on the Chinese mainland through telephone calls, according to Chinese police.
