WSD urges public to be alert to fraudulent SMS message
     The Water Supplies Department (WSD) today (March 15) alerted the public to a fraudulent SMS message purportedly issued by the department.

     The WSD received enquiries from members of the public concerning an SMS message purportedly issued by the department about overcharge of water charges and refund arrangement. The link (wsd-govhk.info) provided in the SMS message is not a WSD website address.

     The WSD clarified that it had not sent the SMS message in question and would not direct customers to other websites with hyperlinks embedded in an SMS message. The department had reported the case to the Police.

     Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to the website concerned should contact the Police. For enquiries, please call the WSD's customer enquiry hotline at 2824 5000.
