Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau reminds public to remain vigilant about bogus phone calls

     A spokesman for the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau (CMAB) said today (December 5) that members of the public should stay alert to fraudulent telephone calls purportedly made from the Bureau and to report the matter to the Police if necessary.

     "We have recently received enquiries from members of the public about suspicious phone calls claiming to be made from the CMAB requesting the called party to provide personal information or documents, or suggesting that the called party is involved in a crime case. Such phone calls were not made by CMAB staff members," the spokesman said.

     "Members of the public should remain vigilant about any suspicious telephone calls. They are advised to verify the identity of the caller and not to disclose their personal information readily. If there is any doubt about the call, they should immediately report the matter to the Police," the spokesman added.
