Fraudster Posing As Staff Of The Community Chest

We have recently received some enquiries about a person posing as staff of The Community Chest of Hong Kong to solicit donations with the promise of financial return for the donor. With reference to such cases, we have the following announcement to make:

  • The Community Chest has not conducted, or authorized any third party to conduct, any projects that come with an investment element.
  • The Community Chest does not give financial reward to individual or corporate donors.
  • It is an offence to collect donations by posing as staff of The Community Chest.

Members of the public are advised that when asked to make a donation, they are to read carefully about the donation methods, and check the authenticity of the official chop, to protect themselves against fraud. If you want to find out more about The Community Chest, please call 2599 6111, email or check out the following links.
