PUTRAJAYA: Members of the public are reminded not to fall for emails or messages claiming to be from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) asking them for their personal details to claim cash prizes.
MCMC said it had never issued any emails or messages to the public, asking them to claim cash prizes under a bonus scheme offered by a telecommunications company.
It said monitoring by the Cyber Intelligence Monitoring Network found that the victims would receive messages claiming that he or she had an unresolved transaction with Telekom Malaysia Berhad for a cash prize of RM270,000 under the TM Family Gift Bonus scheme.
“Avoid handing over personal details such as card and bank account numbers to unknown individuals, ” said MCMC in a statement yesterday.
The commission warned that using its logo without permission was an offence.
The public can lodge complaints via the MCMC hotline at 1 800 188 030, WhatsApp (016-220 6262), email (email@example.com) or through https://aduan.skmm.gov.my. — Bernama
