The Ministry of Public Security has established a special center focusing on telecom fraud crimes, criminal mastermind Ah-hai (by Hsiao-Chuan Chang) and his gang become the key target. Female SWAT team member Xu Xiaotu (by Reve Jiang) is sent as an undercover agent to penetrate into Ah-hai’s den in Thailand. They has also recruited Ding Xiaotian (by Cheney Chen), a town policeman who has come to Beijing alone for catching criminals. The center is led by Captain Tan Sirong (by Cheung Siu Fai Eddie), an experienced police officer who has cracked many telecom fraud cases before.

      The Anti-Telecom Fraud Center approaches Ah-hai gradually, but whenever the police have monitored the money swindled, Ah-hai goes one better to cut the clues off time and time again. With the help of Agent Xu , he talks to Ah-hai’s girlfriend (by Gwei, Lun-Mei) on the phone. The talk evokes her innermost complaints against Ah-hai and reveals more stories as well.

Some telecom fraudsters from Taiwan wants to buy him out, which triggers Ah-hai to carry out his long-planned fraud. He is willing to risk anything, even his beloved ones to achieve the final success.
