Content of Message:

Good day! You are the selected customer by Hong Leong to open the LIMITED structured deposits account ‘Wealth Builder’.
e.g:
You can enjoy the HIGHER guaranteed RM14,000 yearly interest for RM100,000 deposits,RM7000 yearly interest for RM50,000 deposit. Please call SHIRLEY GOH at 012-2856192 for more details and benefits. Thank you.

For all the above cases, the sender is clearly traceable. All SMSes are logged by the telco. Hong Leong is the source behind the third case. Sms.ekomas.com is another. What is particularly unsettling is: how did they get their “3 million database”? Is someone selling our personal data?

Please take appropriate action and keep me informed. Thank you.

Sincerely

Chiew Ruoh Peng
