Police Appeal – Beware of Phishing Website offering to sell surgical masks
Recently, police observed that there are fraudsters impersonating other companies, created phishing websites and offer to sell surgical masks. Buyers foot the bill but fail to get any ordered items afterwards, and the fraudsters went out of reach. One of the cases involved losses in excess of HK $ 2 million.
Stay alert and take heed of the followings prior to online transactions:
— Ascertain the credibility of other parties and verify their identity before conducting any transactions. It is recommended to proactively check with relevant institutions / companies;
— Do not follow URL links from un-trusted sources such as spam emails to avoid being re-directed to malicious websites by malicious links looking seemingly legitimate;
— Abort the transaction if there is any doubt about the identity of the parties involved;
— Take note of the coverage of legal protection and the risks involved in different jurisdictions if transactions are conducted with parties overseas; and
— If in doubt, please call the Anti-scam Helpline 18222 immediately.
Upon receiving, it would be most grateful if you could forward this email to your company’s employees, especially the relevant departments responsible for procurement of surgical masks, to avoid being scammed. Thank you for your assistance.
