    On Friday’s backchat we’ll look at job scams, as the government said eight Hongkongers are currently being held captive in Myanmar after being lured overseas with fake job offers. 
    The Security Bureau said it had received 20 trafficking reports involving Hong Kong residents since the beginning of the year, with 12 of the suspected victims now safe. Ten of them have since returned to the SAR.
    A cross-department task force is now set up to rescue kidnapped residents across Southeast Asia.
    What do you think? How serious is the cross-border scam situation?
    After 9:15, we’ll look into the government’s plan to upgrade and widen Lion Rock Tunnel, in a bid to reduce traffic jams in peak hours.
