It is September 2020 and there is a new wave of CITIZENSHIP SCAMS in Hong Kong. We are hearing more and more news from our friends and clients from Hong Kong about unscrupulous agents offering illegal schemes.
The new scam – Bulgarian fast-track citizenship through investment in real estate
We have been warning the HK residents many times throughout the years already. Still, the scams are now back on the agenda. The newest hit is the offer to get Bulgarian citizenship by investment in real estate. Probably the scammers are marketing this (illegal) option, because the people of HK know very well the potential of the real estate market. So the scammers are now playing two chords at once:
Real estate investment opportunities and EU (Bulgarian) citizenship
What can be better than that, right….
The covid-19 situation – good news for the scammers in Hong Kong
The corona virus lock-down and restrictions on travel are also helping the scammers prosper in 2020. How do you think you will be inspecting your real estate “investment” in Bulgaria? Well, you can travel to Bulgaria, but is it worth all the hassle? The “agent” guarantees you that everything is ok and is even paying you the rental income from “your” Bulgarian house or apartment.

the latest SCAM in Hong Kong
And believe it or not, but you will really get Bulgarian passport within 3 months after you hand over the money to the scammers. The caveat is that the passport will be, you guessed it right, fake (please read the article about fake Bulgarian passports on Posolstvo.eu).

If you have received “Bulgarian passport”, but you have some doubts whether it is genuine, contact us immediately.
