A local Neighbourhood Watch is warning about a scam letter that is being posted to residents, purporting to be from a company in Hong Kong. [15 August 2011]
The letter claims to be from a Hong Kong based business called ‘Hung Kai Finance Company Limited’. It states that a recently deceased member of the recipient’s family had accounts in China and that the recipient is entitled to $10.5 million.
This is a scam. Do not contact the sender and ignore the request if you receive a letter like this.
People are also being warned never to hand out bank details during correspondence such as this.
