Beware of unofficial PR1MA websites

Netizens interested in registering for affordable housing under the 1Malaysia People's Housing Scheme (PR1MA) should be wary of websites that appear to be affiliated with the scheme.

PR1MA chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Mutalib Alias clarified that all official information and registration details could be obtained at the scheme's official website

“Lately, I was made aware of the existence of another website that is trying to dupe the public,” said Abdul Mutalib.

The site, with the address, was set up on Nov 18 and provides users with PR1MA details and updates plucked from the official website and other news portals. It also has links to travel and employment blogs.

In it's disclaimer, however, the site's administrator states “This site contents are for INFORMATION ONLY & DO NOT have any relation with other PR1MA Berhad or its subsidiaries. We will not be liable for any reason in regards to their service.”

“We are monitoring the website to see if the administrator is trying to solicit money or personal information from users,” said Abdul Mutalib.

He said he had received complaints from Netizens who had tried to register for the PR1MA scheme under the unofficial website, which only provides a dead registration link.
