Hang Seng Bank takes a musical turn against fraud with anti-scam concert and campaign

Hong Kong-based Hang Seng Bank has taken a step to increase fraud awareness among the community by combining the influence of music with its anti-fraud message. In partnership with DDB Group Hong Kong, the bank expanded its digital "Fraud Charts" campaign to include a concert at Central Market. With performances by local artists including ToNick, per se, Serrini, and Nancy Sit on 10 March 2024, the event aimed to spread the message of vigilance against scams in an engaging manner.

This approach uses music to communicate key anti-fraud messages. The campaign includes six songs, shared across Hang Seng Bank’s digital platforms, including YouTube. Each song, altered by the artists, acts as an educational tool, turning familiar tunes into narratives cautioning against common scamming methods.

The need for this campaign is highlighted by the significant increase in fraud cases in Hong Kong, with a 42.6% rise reported in 2023, involving over HK$9 billion. With this musical initiative, Hang Seng Bank aims to reach a wide audience and foster a community more resistant to fraud.
