Malaysia just extended the law enforcing compliance with COVID-19 measures and fines for non-compliance to 31 December 2021!
Here is what you need to know…
Malaysia Extends COVID-19 Law + Fines To December 2021!
On 21 July 2021, the Malaysia Minister of Health, Dr. Adham Baba issued an extension to the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Declaration of Infected Local Areas) Order 2020.
Gazetted on 22 July 2021, this order extends the powers conferred by Section 11 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 [Act 342] from 2 August 2021 until 31 December 2021.
Here is the English version of that extension notice :
22 July 2021

DATO’ SRI DR. ADHAM BIN BABA
Minister of Health
No Changes To Current COVID-19 Law + Fines In Malaysia
The new order only extends the current COVID-19 law and fines to 31 December 2021.
There is no change to the law, or the fines announced previously, but let’s do a quick round-up of what was announced earlier.
On 25 February 2021, the Malaysian government introduced amendments to the law that increased fines for non-compliance with COVID-19 measures :
Individuals who commit an offence : Up to RM 10,000
Companies that commit an offence : Up to RM 50,000
Possible additional penalties : Up to 50,000 and/or up to 6 months imprisonment
Offences, for which no penalty is expressly provided : Up to RM 100,000 and/or up to 7 years imprisonment
The Act was also amended to allow the government to order a person to wear a “tracing device”, also known as a tracking device.
These changes came into effect on 11 March 2021, and will continue to apply until 31 December 2021.
Advice on ivermectin dose and protocol by Dr. Amir Farid is circulating on WhatsApp.
Let’s take a look at his advice, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Ivermectin Dose + Protocol By Dr. Amir Farid
This ivermectin dose and protocol by Dr. Amir Farid has been circulating on WhatsApp, teaching people how to take ivermectin to prevent and cure COVID-19.
It is rather long, so SKIP to the next section for the FACTS.
IVERMECTIN DOSE & PROTOCOL.
By Dr Amir Farid
(For best absorption, take AFTER FOOD)
Ivermectin is Best as PREVENTION. Can reduce infection by 86%.
Take 12mg/every week, (adult 50kg and above) even after vaccination (because many still get infected, some die, after completing vaccination) until COVID new cases are low.
(If weight is 90 kg or above, take every 5 days instead of weekly)
CLOSE CONTACT, HIGH EXPOSURE RISK.
If you are a close contact, or the risk of exposure is high, take the second dose 2 days after the first dose. Then continue the weekly dose.
EARLY TREATMENT ( COVID POSITIVE)
The earlier you start Ivermectin, the better. Most effective in the first 7 days after exposure to infected person, not from the day symptoms start (which may happen 3-10 days after exposure)
IF POSITIVE BUT NO SYMPTOMS
Take 1tab (12mg)/daily X 5-7 days.
Then continue 1tab/per week for 5 weeks or more to prevent Long COVID.
IF GOT SYMPTOMS
Take 2 tab (24mg)/a day X 5-7 days.
Then continue 1 tab/per week for 5 weeks or more to prevent Long COVID.
Note that late treatment is less effective, but there have been many cases who recovered despite taking Ivermectin late.
So better late than not taking at all.
There are other protocols being proposed. I find this is easiest to remember and follow.
Some may experience the side-effects of Ivermectin which include nausea, diarrhea, headache, rash etc. Allergic reaction can happen, like for all drugs.
CONTRAINDICATIONS & PRECAUTIONS
Not suitable if:
1. On Warfarin
2. On certain immuno-suppresant drugs
3. Severe liver disease
4. Severe asthma
5. History of severe allergy
7. Breast feeding.
8. Children below 5 yrs
9. Children below 15kg weight.
The maskless bully who threatened to “whack” people who asked him to put on a face mask will be charged in court!
Take a look at the two viral videos, and find out why this Covidiot will soon be charged in court!
Maskless Bully : “You Wanna Kena Whacked?”
In this viral video, a maskless bully wanted to buy food at this roadside stall, but became aggressive when confronted for not wearing his face mask.
He started cursing and threatening not just the stall owners, but also another customer in the video, “You wanna kena whacked?”
The video naturally went viral on social media, and netizens soon identified him as Shyamalan Jaganathan, a 33-year old licensing consultant who once worked for the Echez Group.
Echez Group has since announced that Shyamalan has not worked with them since 2018, stating :
We want to express to you that this person does not work with us since 2018 and does not represent the values and principles of our company.
We have already taken the necessary measures so that he can no longer use our name in social networks.
Echez Group respects and promotes among its employees, collaborators, and associates the application of the Biosafety protocols required in each geography where we have presence.
When his MyKad and His LinkedIn profile became public, Shyamalan quickly deleted his LinkedIn account.
Unfortunately, that didn’t stop netizens from coming across and sharing a video of a previous encounter in which he was abusive to another gym user.
“You Wanna Kena Whacked” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!
The incident happened at Jalan Desa Bakti in Kuala Lumpur, at around 10:30 AM on 19 July 2021.
The stall owner’s daughter lodged a police report against Shyamalan a few hours after the incident.
The Brickfields police announced that they were investigating the matter under :
Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation
Regulation 17(1) of the Prevent and Control of Infectious Disease Regulations 2021 for breaking the Phase 1 SOP (not wearing a face mask)
On 20 July 2021, Deputy Brickfields OCPD Superintendent Basri Sagoni confirmed that they arrested Shyamalan near his house in Taman Desa Bakti at 8 PM last night.
On 21 July 2021, Brickfields District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar said that the police obtained a one-day remand extension, and he will be charged tomorrow (22 July 2021) for criminal intimidation and not following the COVID-19 SOP.
He could receive up to two years of prison and/or a fine for criminal intimidation, as well as a compound for violating the SOP.
Maskless Bully : Why He’s A Danger To Society
Shyalaman is just one of the few but very vocal people who refuse to abide by COVID-19 precautions, in particular – wearing a face mask in public.
If he has COVID-19, he can easily spread it to other people simply by standing next to them. When he walked up to the man in the video, he was more than just physically threatening the other customer.
This is a real concern as the Delta variant of COVID-19 is capable of infecting people in 5 to 15 seconds, if you do not wear a face mask.
That is why it is critical that everyone must wear a face mask in public, preferably double-masked, and put on a face shield or some kind of eyewear if possible.
You should maintain a physical distance of 2-3 metres from other people if you can. Please don’t be a Covidiot like Shyamalan.
The Ukrainian Security Service just raided an illegal crypto-mining operation using 3,800 PS4 consoles!
Take a look inside this Ukrainian PS4 crypto-mine, and find out how much they’re making!
Ukrainian Crypto-Mine With 3,800 PS4 Consoles Raided!
Cryptocurrency miners have turned the gaming world upside down, buying up graphics cards and even gaming laptops in bulk. As long as it has a GPU, they are snatching it up!
But their demand for more computing power does not seem to be sated, and they even turned their attention to old PS4 consoles!
While many have pooh-poohed the possibility of mining cryptocurrency using PS4 consoles, the Ukrainians went ahead and did it!
On 8 July 2021, the Ukrainian SBU (Sluzhba bezpeky Ukrayiny, Security Service of Ukraine) raided the LARGEST illegal crypto-mine in Ukraine, finding :
3800 PS4 gaming consoles,
more than 500 graphics cards,
documents accounting their power consumption,
notebooks, phones, and flash drives.
By hiding inside the former premises of JSC Vinnytsia Oblenerho – a leading Ukrainian power supply company, this crypto-mine conveniently and quietly stole power from the JSC Vinnytsia Oblenerho network!
According to preliminary estimates, they were siphoning about 5 to 7 million Ukrainian Hryvnia (approximately US$180,000 to 260,000 / RM770,000 to 1.08 million) every month!
How Much Can This Ukrainian PS4 Crypto-Mine Make?
The PS4 and PS4 Slim use a custom AMD Radeon 7970M GPU, with 18 compute units and 8 GB of GDDR5 memory with 176 GB/s of memory bandwidth.
It is roughly 20% slower than the AMD Radeon 7970M mobile GPU, but cryptomining is less about processing power, and memory bandwidth.
So let’s just call PS4 Slim equivalent to the Radeon 7970M for mining purposes, which delivers a hash rate of about 8.35 H/s.
Each PS4 console would be fast enough to generate 0.00013896 BTC worth US$4.62 per month, as of 12 July 2021.
So that Ukrainian PS4 crypto-mine with 3,800 PS4 consoles should generate about 0.528048 BTC worth US$18,041 per month, as of 12 July 2021.
That’s really not a lot of profit to be honest, especially when you consider how much electricity they are actually using!
In fact, it is really a loss-making operation if they actually paid for their electricity – they would lose $9 for every dollar they make!
Ukrainian SBU : Official Statement On PS4 Crypto-Mine
This is the English translation of the official statement by the Ukrainian SBU on the illegal PS4 crypto-mine :
The Security Service of Ukraine has exposed and documented the illegal extraction of large amounts of electricity in Vinnytsia. The attackers exchanged cryptocurrency directly in one of the former premises of JSC Vinnytsiaoblenerho. Currently, it is the largest underground crypto-farm discovered by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies: almost 5,000 units of computer equipment were seized.
SBU officers established that the illegal crypto-farm was created by residents of Kyiv and Vinnytsia. They used one of the former warehouses of Vinnytsiaoblenerho JSC, which is located on the company’s industrial site.
The attackers illegally took electricity from the networks of JSC Vinnytsiaoblenerho. To hide their activities, they used conventional means of accounting for electricity consumption.
According to preliminary conclusions of experts, the monthly amount of losses from such activities can range from 5 to 7 million UAH. At the same time, the illegal withdrawal of electricity could lead to more global consequences – entire neighborhoods of Vinnytsia could be left without electricity.
Militiamen registered criminal proceedings under part 2 of Art. 188-1 (theft of water, electricity or heat through its unauthorized use) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
During the authorized searches at the place of operation of the farm and at the addresses of the defendants, the following were seized:
3800 game consoles;
more than 500 video cards;
draft documentation on electricity consumption accounting;
notebooks, phones, flash drives.
Currently, operational and investigative actions are underway to establish the full range of persons involved in illegal activities, including the involvement of officials of JSC “Vinnytsiaoblenergo”.
Exposure measures were carried out by the State Security Counterintelligence Protection Service in the field of economic security of the SBU together with the USBU in Vinnytsia Oblast and the Main Investigation Department of the National Police of Ukraine and under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

Is it true that the Kelana Jaya Health Clinic has been closed, and will now be used only for COVID-19 patients on oxygen?
Take a look at the viral message, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Now Only For COVID-19 Patients?
This warning and picture have gone viral on WhatsApp, claiming that the Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya) is now officially closed, and will only be used for COVID-19 patients on oxygen.
Pls viral to all ur friends in kelana Jaya pj. Klinik kesihatan kelana jaya is officially closed now. Positive cases are on their way here on oxygen. The doctors are put on call in shifts starting from 8pm tonight till tomorrow. They have converted it into a covid battle field.
Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Not For COVID-19 Patients, Operating As Usual
This is yet another COVID-19 fake story that has gone viral on WhatsApp. And here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Kelana Jaya Health Clinic Operating As Usual
The Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya) confirmed that this is fake news, and said that they are operating as usual.
Pihak pengurusan Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya ingin memaklumkan ini adalah BERITA PALSU. Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya beroperasi seperti biasa.
Please be informed that this is FAKE NEWS. Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya is operating as usual. #semaksebelumkongsi #pastikanbenar
Fact #2 : Picture Was Taken At HTAR In Klang
This is for those who ask, “What if the government is lying???”
If you look closely at the background of the photo, you can see that the place has a fence made of unpainted red bricks and vertical iron bars.
It would match the fence at HTAR (Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah) in Klang, but not the actual Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya), which has white walls and both horizontal and vertical iron bars.
Fact #3 : Those Patients Were Not On Oxygen
If you look at the picture carefully, you can see that the COVID-19 patients were not on oxygen at all.
Fact #4 : Those Patients Were Waiting For Beds
Due to the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases, HTAR ran out of beds in the wards, and had to set up makeshift beds outside their Emergency Department.
The patients in the photo were already treated at the Emergency Department before being assigned a makeshift beds, while waiting for new beds in the wards are being readied.
This was explained in a Selangor State Health press release on 8 July 2021.

JKJAV is WARNING people to STOP using the MySejahtera Helpdesk to ask for their vaccine appointment!
Find out what’s going on, and why this is just another Internet hoax!
MySejahtera Helpdesk For Vaccine Appointment?
Viral messages have been circulating on the Internet and WhatsApp, advising people on how to get their vaccinations earlier, or to choose their vaccines :
CARA NAK CEPATKAN DAPAT TARIKH VAKSIN
Yang dah lama dafter vaksin tapi masih tak dapat lagi tarikh, buka app MySejahtera dan cuba cara ini:
1) Klik pada ‘Covid-19 Vaccination’
2) Pilih ‘Vaccine Information’
3) Pilih ‘Helpdesk’
4) Pilih ‘Start’
5) Pilih ‘L Other Queries?’
6) Pilih ‘E Other Issues’
7) Taip ‘Nak appointment vaksin’
8) Tekan ‘Next’ dan tekan ‘Submit’
HOW TO GET AN EARLIER VACCINATION DATE
For those who registered long ago but did not get any vaccination date, open MySejahtera and try this method :
1) Click on ‘Covid-19 Vaccination’
2) Choose ‘Vaccine Information’
3) Choose ‘Helpdesk’
4) Choose ‘Start’
5) Choose ‘L Other Queries?’
6) Choose ‘E Other Issues’
7) Type ‘Want a vaccination appointment’
8) Tap ‘Next’ and tap ‘Submit’
Stop Using MySejahtera Helpdesk For Vaccine Appointment!
On 4 July 2021, JKJAV issued a warning – STOP using the MySejahtera Helpdesk to get an earlier vaccine appointment!
The Helpdesk is meant for people to get help from the JKJAV team, not for people to request for earlier vaccination appointments!
The COVID-19 vaccination appointments are automatically arranged according to these criteria :
When you first registered for COVID-19 vaccination
Any co-morbidities (chronic illness) you may have
Where you currently live
JKJAV warns that there are no shortcuts to getting vaccine appointments, and that there is no need to use the MySejahtera Helpdesk for this purpose.
People who have been using this method in the fake post are drowning out genuine complaints by other users.
Someone should tell the Perak Health Department too, because they themselves fell for the fake news!
This “confusion” or “fake news” is likely based on the earlier fake news that senior citizens age 60 years and above can use the MySejahtera Helpdesk to ask for a vaccine appointment.
So please STOP using the MySejahtera Helpdesk to request for an earlier vaccine appointment… and TELL YOUR FRIENDS to stop doing that too!
Please watch out for the COVID-19 Relief Fund by Federal Government scam!
Find out why it is just aSCAM, and WARN your family and friends!
Scam Alert : COVID-19 Relief Fund By Federal Government!
People are now sharing this COVID-19 RELIEF FUND message on WhatsApp :
Apply For The Covid-19 Relief Fund Provided By The Federal Government. Hurry Up, It takes few seconds to apply. Dont [sic] miss this opportunity.
Note : I added the Scam Alert overlay to prevent it from being further abused.
COVID-19 Relief Fund : Why This Is A Scam
I know many of us are in dire straits during this COVID-19 pandemic, having lost jobs, income or even loved ones. Unfortunately, scammers are counting on our desperation to prey on us.
I will now show you why this COVID-19 Relief Fund message is just another scam. Please warn your family and friends!
Fact #1 : No Global Relief Fund By Any Federal Government
When a scam tells you that “the federal government” is giving away money, you should always ask yourself – WHICH federal government???
No government in the world is giving away money to anyone across the world. Not even the three richest economies in the world – US, China and the EU – have a COVID-19 relief fund to give money away like that.
Fact #2 : The Three Questions Are A Red Herring
Most of these scams employ simple but useless questions to trick you into thinking that this is genuine. Look at the three questions this scam is asking :
What’s your age range?
How much money do you want to receive?
What’s your employment status?
In a real government relief programme, your eligibility status will be based on some official document – your identity card, driver’s licence, passport, etc.
No one is going to give you money simply because you answer a few questions. And NO ONE is ever going to ask you how much you want to receive!
Fact #3 : No Government Will Ask You To Invite Friends / Groups
A real government relief programme will NEVER ask you to invite friends and groups on WhatsApp, much less insist that you invite 15 friends or 5 groups before they give you money.
That’s a dead giveaway that this is a scam, and the scammers want you to help them scam other people. So NEVER invite your friends to join the scam.
Fact #4 : SNF Global Relief Initiative Is Not By Any Federal Government
To make the scam look legit, the scammers used the SNF Global Relief Initiative for the COVID-19 Pandemic graphics.
That initiative is not by any government, but by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
And just in case you are wondering, no, the SNF does not give away money to individuals. They only make grants to non-profit organisations and collaborative funds.
Fact #5 : The Domain Is New + Protected
If you check the domain “relief-fund.live“, you will see that it was only created on 24 March 2021.
Even more suspiciously, all contact and ownership details have been REDACTED FOR PRIVACY. That’s often a sign that the owners are worried about being sued or prosecuted.

Fact #6 : The Comments Are Completely Faked
You may notice a bunch of comments at the bottom of the scam website. They are only there to trick you into thinking that other people received the money.
Try refreshing them. They will never change, unlike a real live comment stream. The time codes will not change either.
Try clicking on the Like option. Nothing will happen. Your Like will not register.
That’s because this is a fake comment stream. It’s all hardcoded and fixed.
Now that you know that this is just another scam, please warn your family and friends.
And please remember – no one gives away money like that. Don’t fall for these scams!

Was Indian journalist, Pragya Mishra, murdered in broad daylight after criticising the Kumbh Mela festival for causing the catastrophic COVID-19 surge?
Find out what the viral video of her murder showed, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Pragya Mishra Killed In Broad Daylight Over COVID-19 Comments!
Two videos and a photo are going viral on WhatsApp, claiming that Indian journalist Pragya Mishra was killed in broad daylight after she criticised the recent Kumbh Mela festival in India for causing the catastrophic surge in COVID-19.
The first video showed the news segment in which Pragya Mishra talked about the Kumbh Mela and the COVID-19 tsunami.
The second video was CCTV footage showing a woman getting stabbed by a man in broad daylight.
The videos are accompanied by one or two pictures showing the woman lying in a pool of blood, with one of these messages :
An Indian broadcaster who spoke against unhealthy Hindu gatherings and the spread of Corona disease was assassinated publicly.
Pragya mishra murdered in broad daylight
Because she was talking in news about kumbh mela in the era of cornavirus
No! Pragya Mishra Was NOT Killed Over COVID-19 Comments!
This is yet another COVID-19 related hoax. Pragya Mishra is alive and well.
It has been suggested that the fake news was created as a kind of warning to Pragya Mishra – watch what you are saying about Hindus and the Kumbh Mela, or else…
That is something we cannot prove, but here are the facts that we can prove…
Fact #1 : Pragya Mishra Is Alive And Well
These videos and photos first circulated on or just before 18 April 2021.
At that time, Pragya Mishra was at home because of “COVID-19 protocols”. When she was informed about the videos and photos, she tweeted that she was safe.
As of 30 April 2021, she’s still active on her Twitter account, @PragyaLive.
Fact #2 : Second Video Was Of A Real Murder
Unfortunately, the second video is genuine, and shows the murder of a real woman on 10 April 2021.
It was not Pragya Mishra, but a 26 year-old lady called Neelu Mehta, who worked at the Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi.
She was stabbed and murdered in broad daylight by her husband, Harish Mehta, an employee of the Marriage Bureau.
Allegedly, he suspected his newly-wed wife of eight months of infidelity, and stabbed her to death. Even after she died, he continued stabbing her.
Sadly, no one intervened or tried to help her.

An employee used fake COVID-19 test results to skip work, forcing the cafe to close and her colleagues to get tested!
Find out what happened, and why this employee could possible be sent to jail!
Employee Used Fake COVID-19 Test To Skip Work!
On 7 April 2021, Justin Tay shared how an employee at his cafe in Skudai, Johor, used fake COVID-19 test results to skip work!
The employee started work as a waitress at the cafe on Monday, 5 March 2021.
She sent her employer a text message the next day – Tuesday, 6 March 2021, claiming that she just tested positive for COVID-19, and was unable to go to work.
He immediately close the cafe, and arranged for it to be disinfected. He also notified customers who were present yesterday, and sent all 13 employees (including himself) to be tested for COVID-19.
While waiting for his test results, he was informed by the doctor that the RTK-Ag (antigen rapid test kit) produces results within 10 minutes, and that his employee’s test results was dated 4 March 2021.
That made him suspicious, so he queried the female employee. She initially claimed that she only received the result on the day she reported for work – a day after she allegedly did the test.
When he told her that he would send the results to a lawyer for advice, the female employee resigned from her job, and finally admitted that the COVID-19 test results were fake.
She apparently asked her friend to edit the positive COVID-19 test report. When you compare both reports, you can see the editing – her friend used a much larger font.
Before reporting the matter to the police, he called up her parents. The female employee and her father came to meet the cafe management, but insisted they did nothing wrong.
So Justin Tay lodged a police report, and reopened the cafe. He estimated his loss at several thousand ringgit, because the cafe was closed and he had to send everyone for COVID-19 tests.
In addition, news spread that their employee was infected, and this caused amok panic and customers to stay away.
Police : Employee With Fake COVID-19 Test Under Investigation
The Iskandar Puteri police chief, ACP Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, confirmed that they will be investigating the case under Section 420 of the Penal Code.
If convicted, the employee can face imprisonment of between 1-10 years, with whipping, and will also be liable to a fine!
420. Whoever cheats and thereby dishonestly induces the person deceived, whether or not the deception practiced was the sole or main inducement, to deliver any property to any person, or to make, alter, or destroy the whole or any part of a valuable security, or anything which is signed or sealed, and which is capable of being converted into a valuable security, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than one year and not more than ten years and with whipping, and shall also be liable to fine.
A fake DON DON DONKI giveaway is being actively shared on social media.
Please IGNORE it, and do NOT click or participate in it
Scam Alert : Fake DON DON DONKI Giveaway!
After DON DON DONKI – Japan’s biggest discount chain store – opened their first store in Malaysia, people have gone ga-ga, and scammers have taken notice.
They quickly created a fake DON DON DONKI giveaway, and many people have been sharing it on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Clicking on it leads you to a fake DON DON DONKI Brand Awareness Survey.
To the uninitiated, it may appear genuine. It has a Google domain, and there is a 100% Guarantee stamp, after all. So how can this be a scam?
Consider for a second the many genuine surveys you have done in the past. Have you ever seen a survey with just TWO questions?
This fake DON DON DONKI survey is intentionally short because the scammer doesn’t want people to quit on seeing a long survey.
In a genuine survey, you would be asked to key in your details for DON DON DONKI management to contact you.
Instead, after you submit, you are taken to what appears to be a Don Don Donki page, asking if you are a member.
This is a FAKE Don Don Donki page. You have been redirected to www.promohebat-my-76.com/cgi-bin/wingame.pl, with the string partner_pk=355.
What basically happened is that you have been tricked into this page by the scammer’s affiliate with a partner number of 355, who gets paid for every person tricked into opening this page.
Whether you choose Yes or No, you will be taken to the same page which is made to look as if you are registering for the voucher.
The truth is you are being tricked into agreeing to share your information with AP Marketing Asia Pacific Limited – a Hong Kong company that collects data to sell, or to push promotions for their clients.
If you key in your details, then you are agreeing to let them sell your email address and contact information to third-parties, as well as accept promotional offers from their clients.
In the next page, they will ask you for your mobile number, and your date of birth. This exposes you to scammers who can use this information for phishing attacks against you or your bank.
In subsequent pages, you are asked to participate in surveys for their clients like Etiqa, and then asked to participate in even more surveys and games.
Ultimately, this is nothing more than a scam to get you to participate in AP Marketing Asia Pacific Limited‘s marketing games and surveys.
You will NOT receive anything and only waste your time. Even worse, you will expose your personal information to AP Marketing’s clients, who may include other scammers.
So please WARN EVERYONE about this fake Don Don Donki giveaway!
Don Don Donki Confirms Giveaway Scam!
Don Don Donki was quickly alerted about this giveaway scam, and they issued a statement warning their fans not to participate.

To protect your personal details, please do not engage, instead report suspicious pages.

These Facebook seafood scam pages have a simple modus operandi :
offer online seafood delivery at very attractive prices and even free delivery
advertise on Facebook to reach out to people, and avert Facebook’s ire
ghost you after you deposit money into their bank accounts
delete your negative comments on their Facebook page
Even though many people reported Ocean Sense and East Malaysia Seafood Agent as scam pages, Facebook declined to take action and they are STILL ACTIVE.
Seafood Scams On Facebook : How To Detect Them!
The problem with seafood scams on Facebook is how easily scammers create them. Even if they get banned by Facebook, they will simply create a new one.
Facebook also partly enables them to continue with their scam by ignoring reports, claiming that there is nothing on the scam pages that go against their Community Standards. Duh – as if the scammers will post on Facebook admitting that they are scammers.
So how do we detect these seafood scams on Facebook?
Step 1 : Check List Of Reported / Confirmed Seafood Scams
The first thing you should do is run a quick search online on the name of the seafood vendor. See if anyone has reported them to be a scam.
Confirmed Seafood Scams On Facebook
Multiple people have reported that these Facebook seafood vendors have cheated them :
J&T Express confirmed the incident, and clarified that it was a misunderstanding by several workers who did not understand their year-end bonus plan.
J&T Express in Perak then shared a video of seven workers saying that they did not strike, and apologising for abusing the packages.
On the other hand, this internal memo showed that J&T introduced a new, lower commission rate for their delivery dispatchers from 1 February 2021 onwards.
J&T Express On Viral Video Of Worker Strike
On 7 February 2021, J&T Express finally issued a statement about these viral videos :
The recent viral case which has been circulated on social media regarding “J&T Deducts Employee Wages Incident” that caused the dissatisfaction among employees with violent sorting behaviour, which has attracted the attention and discussion of the public, inside and outside the industry.
First of all, we express our deepest apologies to all Malaysians. Everyone’s opinions and suggestions are truly accepted and adopted by the company. In order to ensure the stability of our employees and to give the public a true accountability, we take this opportunity to clarify the truth to the public today.
“Deduction of Employee Wages Incident”:
J&T has been fully committed to localisation development, continuously improving employee compensation and benefits, and promoting the development of Malaysia’s social economy and E-commerce Industry. We have been committed to building a complete compensation and benefits system to increase employee benefits.
J&T has given employees year-end bonuses after comprehensive consideration, in accordance with the bonus rules and regulations, and in accordance with the Malaysian Labour Law, full bonuses are paid to employees who have worked for a year.
For employees who have worked for less than a year, bonuses are paid according to the length of working time without prejudice.
Unfortunately, certain employees are not clear about the bonus payment scheme which led to violent sorting of packages on February 4th, inciting some employees to make collective disturbances, and posting the videos to social media.
Our Perak state management has immediately handled and clarified the incident. On February 5th, the employees had resumed their normal working status and actively sorted and processed the packages of customers.
As for the fact that J&T deducts employee wages, we clarify that J&T will not deduct or owe employees a penny of wages, and hereby declare that we are willing to accept the supervision and inspection by the public and institutions.
However, it doesn’t mean it is a safe account. At least 61 people have looked up the same number.
Oddly enough, when he asked for the bank account for the company (whose SSM record he furnished above), he issued him an invoice at a different company, and told him to bank it into “his relative’s company” instead :
A video claiming that OLDTOWN White Coffee used pork in their curry mee has gone viral, leading to an official investigation by the authorities!
Find out what happened, and what the FACTS really are!
Viral Video : Pork In OLDTOWN Curry Mee?
In the video that went viral on Facebook and WhatsApp, a man accused OLDTOWN White Coffee of using pork in their curry mee.
He pokes at the red-coloured meat, and insists that they put in 5-6 slices of pork.
For our foreign readers who may not understand, pork is haram (forbidden) for Muslims.
KPDNHEP Investigates Claims Of Pork In OLDTOWN Curry Mee
The accusation is so serious in Malaysia, that the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) launched an investigation.
Five KPDNHEP Selangor officers inspected the OLDTOWN White Coffee restaurant in Subang Jaya on 13 November 2020, and took samples of the alleged pork used in their curry mee.
Note that this officer is holding a packet of BBQ Chicken, and pointing at its halal stamp.
The Truth : There Is NO Pork In OLDTOWN Curry Mee!
Here is the short verdict on the viral video. It’s a FALSE ACCUSATION, and there is NO PORK in OLDTOWN White Coffee’s curry mee.
This is yet another viral video that has been proven to be FALSE, and here are the reasons why…
Reason #1 : JAKIM + KPDNHEP Confirmed The Claim As FALSE
After investigating the claim, both JAKIM and KPDNHEP confirmed that the claim in the video is false.
The meat used was chicken, not pork, as alleged by the man in the video.
JAKIM also warned the public not to make baseless accusations, while OLDTOWN is consulting their lawyers to determine if they should take action against those who made the false accusation.
Reason #2 : Char Siu Is Not Always Pork
It is likely that the man in the video mistook the red-coloured meat as char siu – barbecued pork.
However, char siu versions of other meats like chicken, beef and venison are available for Muslims, and those who prefer not to eat pork.
After all, the char siu seasoning is made from honey, five-spice powder, red fermented bean curd, dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce and red food colouring, and can be applied to most meats.
In fact, OLDTOWN White Coffee uses chicken char siu in their curry mee, which is clearly visible in their product shot :
Reason #3 : OLDTOWN White Coffee Is Halal-Certified
OLDTOWN White Coffee is a chain of halal-certified restaurants. That means they have to abide by these rules :
Equipment used shall be free from najs, does not contain any hazardous materials and results in side effects to the products produced;
Appliances / brushes from animal hair are not allowed;
The arrangement of equipments and goods in the factory shall be neat, tidy and safe;
Workers are not allowed to live in the premise compound. If it is necessary, living quarters for the workers shall be:
a. having separate entrance to the premise compound;
b. no direct passage way from the worker’s living quarters to the premise compound; and
c. there is a control mechanism on the movement in and out of workers.
Non-halal food/ beverages are not allowed to be brought into the premise compound;
The premise shall have an effective control system from premises that process/ prepare non-halal materials;
All central kitchens and outlets for chain restaurants/ franchise/ food court shall apply for halal certification; and
Liquor and materials sourced from liquor is strictly prohibited to be in the halal kitchen and hotel including the storage area.
While it is not necessary for Muslims to eat only from halal-certified restaurants, a valid Halal certificate means they undergo periodic inspections to ensure they follow the rules.
Reason #4 : Chicken Is Much CHEAPER Than Pork
One of our reader, Johari Jeffrey, points out that chicken is much cheaper than pork.
So it wouldn’t make sense for any business to substitute chicken for a more expensive meat like pork.
