Sister of the late CoCo Lee warns the public of fraudulent schemes that use the singer’s death to raise money

The sister of the late Hong Kong singer CoCo Lee, Nancy Lee, warned the fans and followers of the late singer about scammers who are using the singer’s passing to “raise funds for charity purposes.”

“It has caught my attention that there are unscrupulous scammers going around using my sister’s passing to raise funds for charity purposes,” Nancy wrote in a post shared last July 6.

She went on to state that their family will not be doing any fundraising of the sort, or will issue any memorial products in CoCo’s name.

“WARNING ⚠️  It has caught my attention that there are unscrupulous scammers going around using my sister’s passing to raise fund for charity purpose. Pls beware we will NOT do fund raising of any sort nor have issued any memorial products in her name. Our family will reserve our legal right to pursue these ppl. Finally, do note we will organise memorial gatherings in the Greater China region, timing wise in August, do stay tuned for further info.”

CoCo died at the age of 48. She was hospitalized after attempting to take her own life last July 2 but passed away last July 5, after being in a coma for three days. This news was shared to the public by her sisters Carol and Nancy.

According to her sisters, CoCo had been suffering from depression in recent years but “her condition deteriorated drastically over the last few months.”

The 48-year-old singer gained prominence during the 90s for her strong vocals and soulful ballads, including the Mandarin version of the 1998 ballad “Reflection” from the Disney animated film “Mulan.”

2023 marks the third decade of her singing career and through those years CoCo has “won countless international acclaims with top-selling songs and has left the audience with an astounding impression of her excellent live performances,” her sisters wrote.

They added, “CoCo is also known to have worked tirelessly to open up a new world for Chinese singers in the international music scene, and she went all out to shine for the Chinese. We are proud of her!”

CoCo’s family is reportedly organizing a memorial gathering for the singer in the Greater China region in August, with further details yet to be announced by her family.
