Seven people have been detained in Dong Nai Province for illegally sending around 200 people to Cambodia to work.

Vong Phat Chuong, 36, and six of his accomplices were arrested by police in the southern province Saturday for questioning in connection with brokering illegal exit from Vietnam.

Chuong came to know a man named Thanh in Cambodia through social media who asked him to find workers for his company.

For every person he sent, Chuong was to receive VND300,000 ($12.87).

Chuong and his accomplices then tricked people online by telling them they would go to Tay Ninh for a job with high salaries, but sent them over the border to Cambodia and handed over to Thanh instead.

Since the beginning of this year, they managed to send around 200 people in this manner.

An investigation is ongoing.
