Direct economic losses of 160 million yuan (24.5 million U.S. dollars) has been recovered since the campaign began.

Anti-fraud centers set up across the country are collaborating with banks, telecom companies and e-commerce businesses to combat the crime wave. Police and commercial banks are establishing an information sharing system.

The campaign will last until the end of the year.
