China Daily reports:

More than 4,000 suspects have been arrested in three national crackdowns launched in 2012 and 2013, and at least 1,200 gangs selling and buying personal information illegally have been destroyed.
More than 200 suspects have been punished for providing, selling and obtaining personal information illegally, and the rest face punishment.
