Gigi Chao is pleading for a halt to the flood of messages she has received after her father, property tycoon Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, came up with a HK$500 million bounty to find her a husband.

Posting on her Facebook account, Gigi Chao wrote: "Dear earthlings, thank you for your flood of marriage proposals, love letters, business proposals, death threats and other general correspondence.

"Whether you are Muslim, Catholic, atheist, Hindu or [whatever] your world views may be, I implore you to stop bothering my friends or my receptionist.

"I pray that you will all find love … It's been my deepest honour that you have found me interesting enough to follow me," she said.

Chao, who has now received more than 1,700 e-mails from suitors, earlier asked her father to retract the offer for "the family's sanity". The tycoon has so far refused to back down.
