22nd April 2022 – (Hong Kong) At about 1.30pm today (22nd), the police received a report from a woman surnamed Ng (30 years old), saying that she had been invited by a person earlier to participate in a crypto currency investment project. She deposited HK$600,000 into the online account designated by the other party, but the victim was unable to retrieve the money later, so she was suspected of being deceived. After receiving the report, the police arrived at a unit at No. 322 Shanghai Street, Yau Ma Tei.

The police classified the case as “obtaining property by deception” and handed it over to the Yau Tsim Police District Criminal Investigation Team for follow-up. No arrests have been made so far.
