The notices say the person living at a certain house owes them money and should contact them at the number given. The name of the entity demanding the money appears to be hand-written at the top, then a case file or ID number is given. At least four of the notices were pinned up on lampposts around O Tau.
Senior Inspector Janet Chan, operations boss at Sai Kung police station, said it seemed to be a civil matter not a criminal one. The police will open a “dunning letter” file and monitor the situation, but not take action unless evidence of loan-sharking or threatening behaviour emerged, Janet said.
The person concerned left O Tau some time ago and his flat is vacant.
