The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) wishes to alert members of the public in Hong Kong to a fraudulent website with the domain name "www.icbc-online.com". The website looks very similar to the official website of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Asia) Limited ("ICBC (Asia)"). ICBC (Asia) has issued a press release today (25 October) to clarify that ICBC (Asia) has no connection with the fraudulent website.
ICBC (Asia) has reported the case to the Hong Kong Police Force for further investigation. Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to the website or has conducted any financial transactions through the website should contact any local Police Station or the Commercial Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police Force at 2860 5012 and ICBC (Asia) at 2887 0349.
