Deceptive adverts alert issued

September 16, 2022

The Chief Executive's Office (CEO) today appealed to members of the public for heightened vigilance against online deceptive advertisements purporting to be interviews with the Chief Executive.


It recently noted some deceptive advertisements and webpages, which carry the Chief Executive's name and news photos, on online news portals and social media. Such advertisements lure users to click on them, then direct the public to suspicious transaction platforms.


The CEO strongly clarified that it has never issued or authorised such advertisements, and that the Chief Executive has never conducted the so-called interviews as claimed by the advertisements and the remarks in them are all fictitious.


It urged the public not to visit any suspicious websites via those advertisements or provide personal information to unknown websites.


The CEO has reported the incident to Police for investigation.
