The fugitive, surnamed Kim, cheated over 300 Korean residents out of a total of 2 billion Korean won (1.7 million U.S. dollars) using the excuse of low interest loans from January 2015 to January 2018, and was later listed on the Interpol Red Notice.
On May 15, the Consulate General of South Korea in Guangzhou made a request to the local police for the arrest of Kim, whose residence permit in China had expired.
After receiving the request, Guangdong police carried out an investigation into Kim's whereabouts immediately and captured the fugitive. Under the deployment of China's Ministry of Public Security, local police cooperated with the National Police Agency of South Korea to send Kim back.
