Hongkong Post has recently received enquiries from members of the public about phone calls purportedly from Hongkong Post staff. The callers claim that mail items are available for their collection and may request them to provide personal information.
In case of unsuccessful door delivery of mail items, the postman will leave a notification card to request the recipient to collect the mail item at the designated post office. Hongkong Post staff may need to contact customers by phone calls or require customers to provide names and telephone numbers to facilitate handling of their enquiries or cases. However, we will not ask for other personal information such as identity card number over the phone.
Members of the public should seek assistance from the Police for suspected loss of personal information. If necessary, they may call the Hongkong Post General Enquiry Hotline (2921 2222) for enquiries.
