For the love of art Announcing a major arts sponsorship deal yesterday, Cheung Kong deputy chairman Victor Li Tzar-kuoi was at pains to stress the group's altruistic purpose. Admitting that he was no art buff, Mr Li stressed that Cheung Kong's sponsorship of the 'Festival Plus' programme, a spin off from the main arts festival to be held next spring, was a reflection of the group's long-held love of the arts. The decision, of course, has nothing to do with Cheung Kong's interest in developing the mega West Kowloon site with its 10 million square feet of residential space and lavish, integrated arts facilities. That would be a churlish interpretation and one firmly rejected by Mr Li. in scams we trust The infamous Nigerian money scam has gone truly global. The Continental Trust Bank is the latest to hoodwink the gullible and greedy with promises of millions to be inherited from deceased air accident victims whose cash is lying dormant in the bank. This particular bank uses a Scottish address, which it turns out is that of an unsuspecting and innocent chemist. The address happens to be in the tiny town of Thurso, Scotland's most northerly dwelling place. Surely even the most naive would question why an international bank would choose to set up hundreds of kilometres from the nearest financial centre, in a town with a population of 8,000? The scamsters obviously aren't banking on it.
