Beware of Macau Hotel Package Fraud

How does it work?

Recently it has come to the Police’s attention that swindlers have been cold-calling victims purporting to offer discounted hotel packages in Macau. If the victims are interested, the culprits will ask them to disclose their credit card details for direct online debits, and then claim that specific dates are reserved for them with the hotel. However, when the victims try to make a reservation at the relevant hotel by redeeming the package, they discover that the offer does not exist.

Our advice

  • Be suspicious of unknown calls claiming to be agents or companies which offer discounted hotel packages in Macau.
  • Never deposit money into strangers’ accounts.
  • Never pass on your credit card details to others over phone.
  • If in doubt, please call the “Anti-Scam Helpline 18222”.
