Be careful when investing with ‘Bursa Malaysia’, it may not be the real one!

BURSA Malaysia Bhd notified the public of a growing number of cases where its name and corporate logo are being misused for marketing purposes by unscrupulous companies and websites.

Therefore, the Exchange warns the public to remain alert and cautious before participating in any investment schemes or activities.

Such activities often come in the guise of attractive investment returns or opportunities, which are often done through unsolicited letters purporting to come from Bursa Malaysia or its subsidiaries, and marketing-related emails and postings on various social media platforms.

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.

In addition, the Exchange recommends that you 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 – Feb 6, 2021
