QuickCheck: Is an official ‘TNB competition’ offering a lucky draw cash prize?

A QUESTIONNAIRE allegedly from Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) offering people the chance to win a cash prize if they participate is being circulated online.

Is this a real programme being run by TNB?



In a post on its Facebook page, the Kuala Lumpur Information Department has urged the public to ignore the online questionnaire if they should come across it.

According to the post, TNB was not running any such programme. The department also urged the public not to share the questionnaire on social media.

This was in response to a social media post claiming to be from TNB that was offering a RM1,000 lucky draw prize to participants of the bogus questionnaire.

Such scams start by gathering personal information of victims before contacting them and telling the victims that they had "won the prize".

The next step usually involves the scammers informing the victims that they would need to pay a fee to release the funds that they had "won".
