Other point(s) to note

  1. In some recent fraudulent e-mails the sender claims to be a Hang Seng Bank director/senior executive/member of staff. The sender states that a large sum of money is being held in the Hang Seng account of an individual who has passed away. The recipient of the e-mail is invited to impersonate the account holder or a close relative in order to receive the money. The sender asks the recipient to provide their personal details to initiate the transfer process.
    These e-mails are NOT being sent by Hang Seng and we have referred this activity to the police for investigation. If you receive any such e-mail, please contact the police.
