Shell Malaysia warns the public of SMS scams
Shell Malaysia has been made aware that text messages (SMS) are being sent to mobile phone users informing them that they have won prizes from the Company.
It has come to Shell's attention that Short Messaging System (SMS) text messages are being sent to people claiming that they have won prizes from Shell Malaysia. Typically the sms will tell the SMS recipient that they have won a cash prize from Shell.
Please note that Shell Malaysia does NOT use text messages to communicate to contest winners. Members of the public are advised not respond to such messages.
All winner announcements for contests run by Shell are advertised in the media and available on the Shell Malaysia website www.shell.com.my. Winners will also receive a phone call informing them of their win by a Shell appointed agency. At which point, Shell's agency will need to verify the winner's name, NRIC and address for the prizes to be couriered to the winners. Shell does NOT require any bank account numbers, etc. If ever in doubt, please do check the website to ensure that you are indeed a Shell contest winner.
