What is it with Hong Kong and its banks? The Hong Kong Monetary Authority has just announced yet another one is the victim of a passing-off campaign by internet fraudsters. It's the third this week and it's only Thursday.

And then there's this "In view of the latest situation of COVID-19, the HKMA hotline and Coin Cart services are temporarily suspended. The HKMA Information Centre is also temporarily closed to the public. Please visit the HKMA website/official Facebook page for details or latest updates:

Hotline services: HKMA website
Coin Cart services: HKMA website / official Facebook page
HKMA Information Centre: HKMA website"

BIScom Subsection: 

A spam purporting to be for "Richard White" a customer of the Main Savings Federal Credit Union has arrived. It tells him that he has collected more than 15,000 "CURewards points". And it wants him to log into a website for one of several different options.

BIScom Subsection: 

As countries around the world close their borders for international travel from badly affected countries, are airport transits a threat?

CoNet Section: 

In this page from the on-line resource "Don't be a victim: the Young Person's Guide to the Risks of Financial Crime," the financial crime risks facing everyone, young, old and that huge bit in the middle, arising from the Coronavirus and CoVid-19 pandemic are explained clearly.

Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals service has issued guidelines for witnesses who, because of CoVid-19, give evidence from a remote location. They will be expected to have regard to the same duty to tell the truth as if they were in a witness box in a courtroom.

CoNet Section: 

If it were not for one grossly irresponsible group, Malaysia's anti-viral policies would have been remarkably successful. But the long term effects might be problematic.

CoNet Section: 

This spear-phishing spam-scam is so amateur that some people might actually think it's real. It isn't.

FCRO Subsection: 

A man who can be identified only as B4 left the UK to go to Syria to join al Qaeda, the UK government alleges. A citizen of Libya, he took UK citizenship in addition. The UK Home Department (part of the Home Office) decided to cancel his British citizenship and passport. He has appealed and, at the same time, applied for anonymity. His appeal is stayed pending a determination of his application for legal aid.

CoNet Section: 

Société Générale Securities Australia is subject to criminal charges brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

SocGenSecAus? If you think that's silly, the acronym used by ASIC is worse: "SGSAPL". We'll just stick wiith "SocGen Securities".

BIScom Subsection: 

Case Summary: 

Over a period of some 13 months, a remittance agent in New Zealand brought more than NZD53 million into the country for a single customer while paying little or no attention to the regulatory requirements imposed on it by laws designed to detect and deter money laundering. The case is interesting because it is brought against a company and its owner and another person.

Type of conduct: 
Money Laundering

It's incredible - a tiny bar that has no nameplate, that is hidden behind a door bearing the sign "no admittance" and holding only 25 people in an unfashionable district of Kuala Lumpur's city centre is famous. It's such a cool, almost magical, place that it's the kind of place you keep for special occasions. It's regularly featured in "Best Bars" in all kinds of magazines and, even, seat-back glossies in airlines.

And, sadly, in just a few days, it will be gone.

There's no point in discussing this at length. A spam arrived. It's spreading fear and it's a fraud.
