Be cyber aware: what to do to protect yourself
The British Office in Taipei is aware of instances recently of cyber criminals approaching businesses in Taiwan, using fraudulent email details to pretend to be British Office staff. If in doubt about the legitimacy of any contact, please check if the email details correspond to either those published on our GOV.UK website or contact us via our published email address:; or telephone +8862 8758 2088, to verify contact from a member of our team if they’re not already a trusted contact.
Please be cautious and report approaches to the Taiwanese authorities if they appear suspicious, particularly before releasing funds, providing private data or allowing access to your business.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
