  • We are aware that a number of people across the world have received similar correspondence in relation to an alleged lottery gift from a Mr and Mrs Dawes. We can confirm that the correspondence is fraudulent and does not originate from the Bank of East Asia, Limited. The relevant authorities have been alerted and anybody who receives such correspondence are advised to contact their local law enforcement agency.

    For information, the following recommendations to victims of internet fraud are taken from the website :

    • Cease contact with the sender.

    • Don’t send them any more money.

    • Don’t give them any bank details.

    • If you have already given the fraudsters your bank account details, alert your bank immediately.

    • Be aware that you are now likely to be a target for other frauds. Fraudsters often share details about people they have successfully targeted or approached, using different identities to commit further frauds.

    • People who have already fallen victim to fraudsters are particularly vulnerable to the ‘fraud recovery’ fraud. This is when fraudsters contact people who’ve already lost money through fraud and claim to be law enforcement officers or lawyers. They’ll advise the victim that they can help them recover their lost money, but request a fee.
