Digi wants to improve public awareness on scams

Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) is sharing information to Malaysians on how to stay alert and learn how to identify scams and frauds to protect themselves.

To do this, the company is encouraging all to study the resources available on its scam alert webpage and share it with their family and friends.

The simplified resources highlight five most common scams – Wangiri, Scam Call or Vishing, SMS Scam, Social Media Scam and Malware, how scammers work as well as ways to protect themselves against these hoaxes.

The page also doubles as a platform for users to file a report to relevant authorities of the scams or any malicious cyber-activities they may come across.

Digi says that it will continue public engagement about online safety on its social media platforms and via SMS alerts to help remind Malaysians to always be vigilant.

Easy to download

The public can easily download and share the simplified scam awareness infographics along with many other cybersafety tips and resources from Digi’s Yellow Heart Safe Internet portal.

This is a one-stop repository of educational materials to equip Malaysians with the right tools and knowledge to use the internet safely. These include guidebooks for parents and children, video series, national syllabus modules and more.

The public can learn more about the growing range of cyber-scams and digital frauds from Digi’s Help Centre page, under Common Questions segment or even report a scam to relevant authorities through the portal, should they encounter one.
