The Department of Justice today (July 11) appealed to members of the public to stay alert to a fraudulent email claimed to have been sent by "HK Department of Justice" under a forged email account "email@example.com". The email, containing a suspected link to a malicious file, falsely claims to be issued following the directive of the Secretary for Justice. The department has no connection with the fraudulent email and has reported the case to the Police for further investigation.
Members of the public are reminded not to open any suspicious email. Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to the email sender or clicked the link in the email is advised to contact the Police.
