It has come to our attention that unauthorised individuals or organisations are falsely using the “IOI Group” identity (such as misusing IOI Group’s name, logo, senior management officers’ name and position, etc.) in attempts to defraud members of the public via any unsolicited telecommunication or other unsolicited communications purportedly originating from, or implying an affiliation with IOI Group or any of our subsidiaries within our IOI Group of Companies.
We are aware of unauthorised schemes by way of fake website(s), scam mails, notices, emails, faxes, SMS (short message service), social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter, etc.) that are being circulated by certain parties. Some of the schemes include but are not limited to:
- fraudulently representing themselves as IOI Group’s agent, middleman, third-party individuals or companies or firms as representative;
- illegally conducting unauthorised solicitation of business designed to look real by fraudulently using IOI Group’s name or logo, and asking for earnest money or funds in order to register members of the public’s interest to participate in IOI-related projects;
- falsely using IOI Group’s name in an attempt to recruit on behalf of IOI Group and/or any of our subsidiaries within our IOI Group of Companies, asking you to transfer money for processing visas, work permits, residence cards, immigration costs, or recruiter fees, prior to entering into a contract of employment or receiving a job offer.
