Scam Alert : Fake PS4 Promotions On Facebook!
Video game store GameOn just posted about a scammer pretending to be them on Facebook, promoting these fake PS4 bundle deals :
- PS4 Pro : RM 799 with 2 free games and 2 controllers
- PS4 Slim : RM 699 with 2 free games and 2 controllers
The scammer, using the similarly sounding GameOn City, offered this fake-looking SSM company registration certificate to prove his authenticity.
GameOn apparently found out about this scam, after someone got cheated and contacted them about it.
GameOn, which is based in Petaling Jaya (not Negeri Sembilan as the GameOn City SSM certificate shows), and has been in business since 2015.

But please note that this scammer can easily use a different company name, so do not assume that other PS4 offers on Facebook are genuine!
Fake PS4 Scam : How To Avoid It?
Here are some simple steps to avoid falling for such a scam :
- If a deal is too good to be true, it is very likely to be fake or a scam.
The real PS4 Pro bundle costs RM 2,399 – how can it possibly be sold for just RM 799, which is just ⅓ of the price?
- Real companies will not post up their SSM certificates. Only those who need to convince you that they are legit.
- Never transfer money to anyone’s personal bank account.
- Purchase only from legitimate companies / online stores. Not through WhatsApp or Facebook.
