KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Customs Department has warned the public against being duped by parties claiming to be consultants of auctions involving luxury cars seized by the department.
Customs deputy director-general (Enforcement) Datuk Hassan Ibrahim said the department only opened public auctions on seized cars via the department’s official website.
“The auctioning of the cars are not done using middlemen, short messaging service (SMS) or Whatsapp,” he said yesterday.
Hassan said irresponsible parties had disseminated fake advertisements through Whatsapp on public auctions by Customs, namely “Car from port, all cars are seized by the Customs officer”.
They claimed in the advertisement that they were handling the auction and anyone keen to buy an auctioned car must pay cash.
“Customs only auctions cars via tender and there is no such thing as middlemen,” he added.
He said auctions were made in an open manner for all and it accepted the highest bids for the make of cars that are being auctioned. — Bernama
