Fraudsters posing as mainland Chinese officials duped Hong Kong residents out of HK$726 million (US$93 million) in phone scams in the first 11 months of 2021, the highest losses in a single year for such cases since 2015.⁠

The amount was also 35 per cent more than the HK$539 million victims reported losing to phone scammers over the same period last year.⁠

Mainland students who arrived in the city for the new academic term were one group targeted by fraudsters, who scared them with claims they had broken the law across the border before extracting their personal information.⁠

Between September and November, 101 postsecondary mainland students were scammed out of nearly HK$36 million. In the biggest case, a student reported losing HK$2.4 million.⁠
