Tenaga Nasional 33th Anniversary Survey : Why This Is A Scam!
Unfortunately, this is yet another survey scam, like the Petronas 50th Anniversary scam!
Tenaga Nasional confirmed that this survey is a scam in a scam alert on their website on 6 February 2023.
Win Cash Rewards from TNB – 6/2/2023
TNB customers are advised to ignore survey links that claim they can win cash rewards from TNB.
TNB does not organize any kind of cash prize giveaway on social media. Please be careful and avoid spreading this false information.
I know many of us are in dire straits during the COVID-19 pandemic, having lost jobs, income or even loved ones.
Unfortunately, scammers are counting on our desperation to prey on us, using the same survey scam they have been using for years :
- Petronas 50th Anniversary Scam Alert!
- Jaya Grocer 20th Anniversary Scam Alert!
- FamilyMart 70th Anniversary Survey Scam Alert!
- Scam Alert : COVID-19 Relief Fund By Federal Government!
- Scam Alert : Toyota 80th Anniversary Celebration!
- Tesco New Year Scam Alert : Do NOT Click / Forward!
- Scam Alert : Fake DON DON DONKI Giveaway!
- HUAWEI New Year Gift Scam : Don’t Click Or Share!
Now, let me show you how to spot these scams next time!
If you spot any of these warning signs, DO NOT PROCEED and DO NOT SHARE!
Warning Sign #1 : Bad Grammar
Most of these scammers do not have a good command of the English language, so if you spot bad grammar, stay away.
Proper contests or events sponsored by major brands like Tenaga Nasional will have at least one PR or marketing person who will vet the text before allowing it to be posted.

Warning Sign #2 : Offering You Free Money Or Gifts
Please do NOT be naive. No one is going to give you money or free gifts just to participate in a survey!
Tenaga Nasional isn’t going to give you FREE money, just because it’s their anniversary.
They are a corporation whose business is to make money, not a charity to give you free money.
Warning Sign #3 : Not Using The Real Jaya Grocer Domain
A genuine Tenaga Nasional campaign would use their real domain – www.tnb.com.my.
Or they would run it off the official Tenaga Nasional page on Facebook – www.facebook.com/TNBCareline/.
If you see nonsensical domains like merefamily.top, 0yjjg61.cn, 1eaf1rnbeef.top, ldxqw.bar, etc. that’s a sign it’s a SCAM!
Warning Sign #4 : Asking You To Forward The Offer
No brand will insist that you must share the offer with 5 groups or 20 friends on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
Do not click to forward their offer to your family and friends. They will not appreciate being scammed with your help!
Warning Sign #5 : Asking You To Download + Register An App
If you click through and joined the fake survey scam, you will eventually be asked to download and register for an app.
This is VERY DANGEROUS. Never agree to download and register for any unknown app from a website.
Always download your apps from an official App Store like Google Play Store (for Android smartphones) and Apple App Store (for iPhones).
