MyHSR Corp chairman's WhatsApp account hacked


KUANTAN: MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR Corp) chairman Datuk Seri Fauzi Abdul Rahman says his WhatsApp account was hacked last week.

He said he received a link to join a religious ceremony involving the Prime Minister's Department before his WhatsApp account was hacked and became inaccessible to him.

Following this, Fauzi said his family members and acquaintances started receiving WhatsApp messages purportedly from him asking to borrow money, with the account number of an unknown individual also included.

"I received calls from them asking whether or not I really wanted to borrow the money... I told them not to send (the money) as my WhatsApp account had been hacked," he told reporters here on Wednesday (April 3).

He added that he lodged a police report on Sunday (March 31).

Meanwhile, MyHSR Corp issued a statement urging anyone who receives such requests from Fauzi to ignore them as they were fake.

It also advised fraud victims to lodge police reports without delay.

MyHSR Corp was incorporated in 2015 and is wholly owned by Minister of Finance (Incorporated). It is under the supervision of the Transport Ministry.

The company is responsible for developing and implementing the High Speed Rail project linking Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. – Bernama
