Yes, these people are smart. They know the public is financially vulnerable now. Ramadan is coming in 2 weeks, hence we are already doing mental calculations of how much money to spend to get new clothes, buy ingredients to make cookies / rendang / lemang (sushi melayu? :-D), give away “duit raya” to kids and so on. Let’s not mention the recent price hike for sugar and petrol, which only set to blow up the price of everything else by tenfold. Have to budget for that too.
So when we open our inbox and see an e-mail from LHDNM saying that we get some tax refund, isn’t that the most exciting thing ever?
But wait, don’t get overly excited just yet. It may just be another big fat SCAM!
Here’s an e-mail I got from LHDNM (not directly of course, it has been passed around many organizations for the past few days) with a 5-page attachment warning the public on the scam. If you need further clarification, go ahead and call the guy, he even left his mobile number there.
P.S.: These new scam websites are looking a lot more realistic than before. Perhaps they have better quality control now ;-) So please be EXTRA CAREFUL yea!
