Hongkong Post today (December 22) reminded the public to be alert to pop-up scams with links to fraudulent Hongkong Post websites which request customers to provide personal and/or credit card information to win a prize.
Such fraudulent websites impersonating those of Hongkong Post invite participation in online survey or lucky draw through pop-up windows, and request participants to provide personal and/or credit card information to win a prize. Please note that Hongkong Post has not conducted any online survey or luck draw at the moment. Members of public are advised not to click on any suspicious links or pop-up windows, disclose any of their personal and/or credit card information, nor make any payment. Hongkong Post has reported such fraudulent websites to the Police for investigation.
If the public are in doubt about the authenticity of any email, SMS message or website, please do not click on their embedded links, provide personal or credit card information or make any payment. For enquiries, please call the Hongkong Post General Enquiry Hotline at 2921 2222.
