Berjaya Corporation Berhad ("BCorp" or “Company”) has recently learned of an email scam
involving persons posing as the Company’s officers using the names Dato Tan Sri Chong
Keith Hunt, and falsely giving the impression that the company names of Berjaya
Bhd and Berjaya Financial Corporation as well as the websites
and https://bfcap.net are affiliated
to the BCorp Group. The modus operandi of the scam
involves solicitations for business investments or business ventures.
BCorp would like to categorically state that it has no involvement whatsoever with the above-mentioned company names, websites and any affiliates and persons claiming to be employees of the company or of BCorp, as well as their fraudulent practices and solicitations.
BCorp has reported this fraudulent matter to the relevant authorities so that the appropriate action can be taken.
BCorp would like to warn members of the public that should they receive email solicitations from anyone posing as the Company, its group affiliates or the Company’s officers that appear even remotely suspicious, they should not respond to these emails or communicate with the sender, nor provide the sender with any personal or financial information.
BCorp would also like to remind the public to avoid clicking on links or opening attachments included in the emails, as doing so may result in malware or a virus being loaded on to the recipient’s computer.
BCorp will not be liable or responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, suffered by any party or parties arising from such online scams.
It has been brought to BCorp's attention that an individual named Dato' Sri Diraja Prof
Abdul Rahman Osman Al-Attas has been circulating a business card bearing the Berjaya
claiming to be the Executive Group Chairman / Advisor of Berjaya Group.
We wish to alert members of the public that there is no person by that name under employment in the BCorp Group. Neither BCorp nor its subsidiaries are involved or associated in any way with this individual.
BCorp will not be liable or responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, suffered by any party or parties arising from any interactions or dealings with this individual.
