PETALING JAYA: Several fake posters of Tabung Harapan Malaysia (THM) fund bearing a fake account number are circulating on social media.

One such poster, which is identical to the official THM poster that was published on the Finance Ministry's Facebook page, is making its round on WhatsApp.

However, it bears a fake account number that does not exist.

The official account number for the trust fund is 5660 1062 6452.

This is a Maybank account number with the account holder name listed as "Tabung Harapan M'sia".

Only donations in ringgit will be accepted.

Those depositing money into the account are advised to double check the account number and account holder name before confirming their deposit.

On Friday (June 1), minister Lim Guan Eng revealed that Malaysians have contributed a total of RM7mil within 24 hours of its launch.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had announced the setting up of the fund on Wednesday (May 30) to accept contributions from the public who wanted to ease the Government's financial situation.

Last week, Lim said the country's debt was now RM1 trillion, higher than the figure announced by the previous administration.
