MCMC Never Appoints Anyone As Its Agent

in Latest

IPOH: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has never authorised or appoint any person to act as its agent
to go from house to house to distribute the 1Malaysia Netbooks.

Its northern region deputy director (Regulatory Compliance), Hanita Izam Abdul Rahman said the commission also did not impose nor collect any fee for the netbooks.

He said the commission always worked with the police to identify culprits involved in such a scam.

“MCMC made several postings on the social media to remind the public to be wary and to contact the police or the commission should they be approached by anyone claiming to be from MCMC with the 1Malaysia Netbook offer,” she added.

The public can also lodge their complaints at or call 1800-888030 or call the Perak MCMC office at 05-5014000.

She was referring to a case of a man, who goes by the name of Zambri, impersonating as MCMC officer and going from house to house offering the 1Malaysia Netbook for a certain payment.

“The victims were asked to pay between RM1,000 and RM2,500 for the netbook,” she added.

Hanita said 23 police reports had been lodged since last year on the case and the victims included from Sungai Siput, Manjung, Batu Gajah -and Chemor. —BERNAMA
