- Taiwan Food and Drug Administration cautions the general public not to purchase medications from unreliable sources
The Taiwan Food and Drug Administration warns the general public not to buy or consume dietary supplements with ambiguous labels, a claim of exaggerated efficacy, or unknown provenance, particularly pharmaceuticals that have not been given the go-ahead by regional health authorities.
To prevent medicines having prohibited components that might jeopardize other people's health or even violate the law, do not distribute or use medications as gifts to friends or resell them to others.

- The frauds use overdue fuel fees SMS to defraud, Vehicles Office urges the people to remain vigilant and double-check any texts they receive.
At the end of July, the period for paying the vehicle's fuel fees has ended. A Taichung resident recently received a text message reminding him or her that the bill was overdue. The resident was almost tricked since the payment URL link in the text message was the same as the URL for the Vehicles Office. Later, the resident also spoke to the city councilor to warn more people to be wary of such bogus text messages.
