HKMA Fraudulent Email Alert

Press Releases

Suspected fraudulent websites: https://luxosb.com/ and https://www.luxembourgoffshorebankingreview.com/about/

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) wishes to alert members of the public in Hong Kong to two suspected fraudulent websites with the domain names of https://luxosb.com/ and https://www.luxembourgoffshorebankingreview.com/about/.  These websites are operated by an alleged Luxembourg Offshore Banking.

The public should be aware that Luxembourg Offshore Banking is not authorized under the Banking Ordinance to carry on banking business or the business of taking deposits in Hong Kong, nor does it have the approval to establish a local representative office.

The HKMA has referred the case to the Hong Kong Police Force for further investigation. Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to the websites or has conducted any financial transactions through the websites should contact any local Police Station or the Commercial Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police Force at 2860 5012.

Given the global nature of the Internet, members of the public are reminded to verify the status of any organization making use of the Internet to solicit deposits from the public. A list of authorized institutions is available on the HKMA’s websites (www.hkma.gov.hk). Members of the public may also check the status of any entity in Hong Kong which solicits deposits from the public with the HKMA by calling its public enquiry hotline 2878 8222.
