Through inspection and review, the Vietnam Counterfeit Information Processing Center discovered that the website vn-nguoikinhdoanh.com showed signs of tampering with the press agency.
Specifically, the page “Get rich business magazine” with the address vn-nguoikinhdoanh.com claims to be the cultural and entertainment column of VnExpress (Ministry of Science and Technology). In the content section, this online magazine synthesizes a lot of news and articles from the VnExpress electronic newspaper. The news articles mainly write about information related to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and beauty content.
