Staying Safe
Be sure that you need to have an official ID such as ARC or the passport with you always.Avoid leaving your backpack, computer, purse, suitcase, or wallet unattended in a public place.

 

If you plan to travel, get directions before leaving.It is better to ask a bus driver or shopkeeper for directions from strangers.If you must walk alone, know where you are going and look confident.If you must take taxi, please let your friends know the taxi' s number.Always keep your cell phone on.

If you want to drive a car or a motorcycle, a driver license is required in Taiwan.The legal age for having the driver license is 18.If you are under 18, you will not be allowed to stay outside of the house after 00:00 am.

You do not have to give money or help to street people or strangers.If you choose to give a little money, avoid opening your wallet on the street.Also, when you go to withdrawal cash from ATM, be sure to cover the pin number when pressing it.

Call 110 if you experience an emergency or have been the victim of a crime.
For fire or ambulance, you should call 119.

Be Careful of Fraud Rings!!!
Recently, we received reports from our students who were deceived by fraud rings and caused them to lose lots of money.We would like to alert every student these incidents.DO NOT give any information for someone whom you do not know or to any strange phone call that asks to check or asks about your account numbers, your ID number, your birthday or the spelling of your name.They will give a lot of excuses to ask about your personal banking information.Please remember, DO NOT just follow the instructions from the strange phone number by answering their questions or process any of your banking affairs even if they said they are from government offices, your banks or cell phone companies.You may have two choices: Choice 1: Hanging up the phone immediately.Choice 2: Ask their phone numbers and check this phone number with "The Internet Fraud Complaint Center" (The telephone is 165, you can dial directly from cell phone, too) to make sure this phone call is not from fraud rings.
