CEO alerts public to deceptive advertisements purported to be interviews with CE
     The Chief Executive's Office (CEO) today (September 16) appealed to members of the public for heightened vigilance against online deceptive advertisements purported to be interviews with the Chief Executive (CE). The CEO strongly clarified that it has never issued or authorised such advertisements. The CE has never conducted the so-called interviews as claimed by such advertisements and the remarks in the advertisements are all fictitious.
     The CEO recently noted some deceptive advertisements and webpages, which carry the CE's name and news photos, on online news portals and in social media. Such advertisements lure users to click and take them to suspicious transaction platforms. A spokesman for the CEO 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 the Police for follow-up investigation.
