Two elderly women fell victims to a phone scam this week, losing a total of 30,000 yuan, Judiciary Police (PJ) spokesman Choi Ian Fai said during a regular press conference yesterday at the PJ headquarters in Zape.

According to Choi, the victims are a 72-year-old woman from Hong Kong surnamed Ko, who stays in Macau often, and her 62-year-old sister, a local woman.

Choi said that on Monday Ko received a call from a Cantonese-speaking man on a local mobile phone number. The man, who sounded like her nephew, greeted Ko and told her that this was his new phone number. The following morning, the man called Ko again, telling her that he and his two friends had been drinking in Zhuhai and “had an incident”. He told her that he had been detained by the mainland authorities, adding that it would take 30,000 yuan to get him released. The man asked Ko to come to the mainland and transfer the amount to a specific account.
