Education Bureau alerts public to fraudulent emails
     The Education Bureau (EDB) today (April 19) reminded members of the public to stay alert to fraudulent emails purporting to be sent by the EDB from "procurement@edb-govhk.com", an email address with a domain similar to that of the EDB (@edb.gov.hk). The sender claimed to be an EDB staff member and invited vendors to provide quotations for some products.

     A spokesman for the EDB clarified, "The EDB has no connection with the fraudulent email. Members of the public and vendors are reminded not to click on the links of any suspicious email, provide any of their personal and bank information through such links, nor make any payment. The EDB has reported the incident to the Police."
