OGCIO reminds the public to be alert to fraudulent calls and SMS messages
     The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) today (November 1) alerted members of the public to fraudulent calls and SMS messages purportedly made or issued by "iAM Smart".

     The OGCIO has recently received enquiries from members of the public on voice calls and SMS messages claimed to be made by "iAM Smart". The voice calls are made in pre-recorded format and the SMS messages are related to "iAM Smart" online registration review, with the URL of the "iAM Smart" website included.

     The OGCIO clarified that it had neither made the voice calls nor issued the SMS messages in question. The cases have been referred to the Hong Kong Police Force for follow up. Unless members of the public have made enquiries to "iAM Smart" hotline and requested a reply, supporting personnel of "iAM Smart" will not proactively contact them via voice calls or SMS messages. If members of the public receive unidentified voice calls and messages, they should stay alert and refrain from disclosing any personal information or visiting any suspicious websites.

     Anyone who has provided his or her personal information during unidentified voice calls or to any suspicious websites should contact the Police. For enquiries, please call the "iAM Smart" hotline at 182 123.
