We would like to bring to your attention the recent surge in internet scams and telephone deception cases in Hong Kong. These types of crimes have become increasingly common in recent years, with many falling victim to scams, such as telephone deception, online romance scams, and investment fraud.  


Fraudsters may pose as employees of reputable organisations such as Express Companies, or even government departments like the Immigration or Health Departments. We urge you to remain vigilant and refrain from disclosing any personal information or transferring money to these individuals.
