Viral message on incentive false.
The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has identified a viral message which claimed that members who worked between 1990 and 2018 are entitled to an RM6,000 incentive.
In a statement today, EPF said the viral message and contents were false and did not come from the agency.
“The message also has a link which will be directed to the fake EPF website, asking people to respond to a survey to check for their entitlement to the incentive on the fake website,” it said.
The EPF believed that this was an attempt to phish for members’ personal data for fraudulent purposes.
Members are urged not to respond to such surveys nor provide their personal data to any unverified third party, and also not to spread the chain message any further.
