It has come to the recent attention of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited (together with its subsidiaries, “Chow Tai Fook”) that apparently someone misrepresented themselves or falsely held themselves out as Chow Tai Fook for the purpose of carrying on business or causing confusion in Mainland China and Hong Kong.
Business cards bearing Chow Tai Fook's registered trademark (without our authorisation) have been disseminated in the course of the said wrongful actions, with the names of the following persons appearing thereon: 陈松涛 (Chen SongTao), 陈松 (Chen Song), 齐青 (Qi Qing) and Jason Chen.
The business cards in question also show the following company names:
It has also come to our attention that the following companies were incorporated in Hong Kong. Chow Tai Fook has no connection whatsoever with such companies and their directors, and has not authorised them to use Chow Tai Fook's name or brand. Chow Tai Fook has taken action against them:
Chow TaiFook Investment Group Limited (周大福投资集团有限公司), of which Jason Chen is a shareholder and director

Tai Fook Endowment Industry Investment Development (Group) Limited (大福养老产业投资发展(集团)有限公司), of which Chen Song (陈松) is a director and shareholder
