Bursa Malaysia urges public to exercise caution before participating in investment schemes

Bursa Malaysia Berhad has urged the public to remain alert and cautious before participating in any investment schemes and activities. The Exchange has observed a growing number of cases where the Bursa Malaysia name and corporate logo are being misused for marketing purposes by unscrupulous companies and websites.

Such activities often come in the guise of attractive investment returns or opportunities. These scams are often through unsolicited letters purporting to come from Bursa Malaysia or its subsidiaries, and marketing-related emails and postings on various social media platforms, carrying the Bursa Malaysia name and logo. Recipients are often asked to click on links leading
to false websites or scam phone numbers.

Members of the public are also reminded to invest with licensed parties only. For a list of unauthorised websites, investment products, companies and individuals, please visit Bursa Academy at https://www.bursaacademy.bursamarketplace.com/en/sc-investor-alert.

In addition, the Exchange recommends that the public do not:
• Make any payments without being certain the transaction is legitimate
• Provide any personal information or data to anyone you do not know
• Reply to suspicious emails or text messages, or contact the sender
• Open suspicious website links or attachments which can potentially harm your computer or mobile devices with a virus

Bursa Malaysia does not engage third party agents to represent them. If you receive unsolicited and/or suspicious communications relating to, or claiming to be agents of Bursa Malaysia, the bourse recommends contacting them directly at 03 – 2732 0067 or email at [email protected] to authenticate the content of any such communication.
