CSO alerts public to deceptive advertisements purported to be interviews with CS
     The Chief Secretary for Administration's Office (CSO) today (December 23) strongly clarified that, as regards the deceptive advertisements and webpages found on online news portals and in social media recently that carry the name and news photos of the Chief Secretary for Administration (CS), and lure users to click on for taking them to suspicious transaction platforms allegedly involving virtual currency bitcoins, the CSO has never issued or authorised such advertisements. The CS has never conducted the so-called interviews as claimed by such advertisements, and the remarks in the advertisements are all fictitious. 
     The CSO appealed to members of the public for heightened vigilance against online deceptive advertisements purported to be interviews with the CS. It urged them not to visit any suspicious websites via those advertisements or provide personal information to unknown websites. 
     The CSO has reported the incident to the Police for follow-up investigation.
