It has come to the attention of the Police that some citizens had recently received phone calls from people posing as mainland Chinese officials. In the conversations, the scammers would claim that the victims had been involved in money laundering activities related to the fraudulent selling of face masks in the Mainland. The scammers then asked the victims for their personal particulars such as names, identity card numbers and bank account details, or even would instruct the victims to transfer sums of money to designated bank accounts, in order to defraud them. The Police would like to remind members of the public not to disclose their personal particulars or bank account details to others. When in doubt, please call the “Anti-Scam Helpline” at 18222 for more information. The Police also appeals to members of the public whoever received the message to remind their family members and friends around them, in particular the elderly.
