SOCIAL MEDIA SCAM
Dear Valued Clients

We would like to inform that recently scammers are using Telegram Group or other social media platform to solicit for investment business. Please refer to the sample modus operandi of the scammer below.
As such, be vigilant and be wary of any third parties who claim to be from or representing TA Securities Holdings Berhad (TASHB) or any other stockbroking companies. For any clarification, kindly email to kl@ta.com.my

Sample - Modus Operandi of the Scammer

  1. Will use social media to create a group for chat and updates of business investment.
  2. They will incite in the group about a new investment and create a hype on the large profit margin to be made.
  3. Normally they will have a designated contact person to do further investment.
  4. Once anyone contact the designated person, they will deal in another private chat.
  5. The designated person will then provide the fake covering letter / offer letter – for the purpose of investment e.g. Private Placement Shares, at huge discount compared to the market price.
  6. Instruction will then be given to bank in cash to the bank account of a stockbroking company to convince the investor or to mule accounts (normally a company or individual account). The investor will be given strict instructions not to inform anyone as this will jeopardize the chances of “successful investment”.
  7. The investors are then requested to send the cash bank in slips to the designated person via email or social media as proof of payment.
  8. The scammer will then forward the cash bank in slips to the stockbroking company to pay for the share purchases under the nominee’s accounts. Share Sales transaction will subsequently be carried out and the sales proceeds credited to the scammer nominees bank accounts which will be cashed out.
  9. The investors will only realize that they have been scammed once there is no reply from the designated person on their investment or the designated person cannot be contacted.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS TYPE OF SCAM

SC Announcement - Unlicensed Activities and Scams
This message comes to you from the Consumer and Investor Office (“CIO”) of the Securities Commission Malaysia (“SC”).

Unlicensed Activity concerning intermediaries

In September 2022, we included 1 clone firm scam on our SC Investor Alert List, as follows:

Name of Unauthorised Website/Products/ Entities/IndividualRemarks

Potential clone entity – Wahed Investment



(https://t.me/wahed_investing_malaysia)

  • Misusing the name and credentials of Wahed Technologies Sdn Bhd (eCMSL/A0359/2019) a licensed entity with SC for fund management in relation to portfolio management to carry out an illegal investment scheme offering high returns e.g. return of RM15,000 in 3 hours with investment of RM500
  • Misrepresentation and misuse of SC’s name

The above clone firm scam had impersonated Wahed Technologies Sdn Bhd’s name and logo to perpetrate the scam.

The scam was promoted via social media through Telegram to lure investors with investment packages guaranteeing high returns.

As highlighted in previous blast, the common key characteristics of the scams are as follows:-
  • Interested individuals/investors are randomly invited into a Telegram group. This will redirect these individuals to communicate to an “agent” or “broker” via the Telegram application.
  • Once interest to invest is communicated, the scammer will provide a mule bank account details for the investment to be made.
  • Once the initial “investment” is made, these individuals will be notified very soon thereafter that their investment has made a profit which may prompt the individuals to make further (and bigger) investment.
  • However, to withdraw their profits, these individuals will be asked to make further payments guised such as Bank Negara charges, income tax charges, administrative fees etc.
