Warning of telecom fraud in the name of Chinese Embassy/Consulate-General in the UK
2018/06/08

Recently, the Chinese Embassy in the UK received phone calls reporting telephone fraud, in which scammers displayed their phone numbers as the Chinese Embassy in the UK (beginning with 44-20-7299) and fabricated kidnappings or accidents, notification of letters or parcels, notification of expiration of passports or other documents.

This Embassy has repeatedly issued warnings against such telecom fraud in the name of Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General, and has reported such fraudulent calls to the British police.

The Embassy would like to once again remind that if anyone receives a suspected fraudulent call, please hang up immediately for self-protection. Please also be advised to contact the Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General in the UK to verify the situation if this is deemed necessary. In the unfortunate event of falling victim to such scams, they should immediately report the case to the police.
