We wish to alert the public of fraudulent emails and messages, purported to be sent from Lee Shau Kee Foundation (“the Foundation”) or Dr Lee Shau Kee (“Dr Lee”), in an attempt to deceive the recipients into believing that they have been granted a monetary donation / funds by the Foundation or Dr Lee.
These fraudulent emails and messages were sent from free webmail addresses such as “firstname.lastname@example.org”, “email@example.com”, “firstname.lastname@example.org”, or via Facebook Messenger from fraudulent social media account such as “https://www.facebook.com/ezekiel.haruna.5915”.
We hereby clarify that neither the Foundation nor Dr Lee has proactively sent any emails or messages to individuals and/or companies offering any funds / grants. The Foundation and Dr Lee would not use any free webmail account and have not opened or maintained any social media account. The Foundation and Dr Lee have no connection whatsoever with these fraudulent emails, messages and social media accounts. We have reported the matter to the Hong Kong Police for investigation.
Members of the public should be vigilant with regard to fraudulent emails or messages, and should always exercise due care in disclosing any personal data and information, or in acting upon any request for payment from unverified sources. Please report to the police in case of suspicious of fraud.
