SCAM ALERT

This is an important notice on fraudulent communications that have been made to members of the public which are purported to be made on behalf of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA).

A. MIDA Recruitment Fraud


There have been recent incidents where organisations and individuals pretend to recruit by representing themselves as MIDA or as being under MIDA’s employment. These propositions notify members of the public that their qualifications were found suitable to work as an employee (local or expatriate) for MIDA and to solicit the transfer of significant sums of money as fees for the recruitment process.

Please note that MIDA do not ask for any money or payments from applicants, at any point in the recruitment process. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from MIDA, whether directly or indirectly are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.

All online communication on recruitment from MIDA, if any, would be sent by MIDA’s officials using only e-mail domains of “@mida.gov.my”.

The official website of MIDA is www.mida.gov.my. For those who wish to seek employment with MIDA, please visit www.mida.gov.my/home/career/posts/ for more information or contact MIDA’s Human Resource Management Division at +603-22673789.


B. Fraudulent MIDA website


MIDA would like to alert the general public that there is a scam website which appears to be a direct copy of MIDA’s website. The scam website uses the same design, layout and content from MIDA's official website (www.mida.gov.my) but replaces MIDA's name with 'Malaysian Foreign Procurement Agency' (MFPA).

MIDA is not in any way associated and do not have any dealings with the Malaysian Foreign Procurement Agency.

MIDA shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage in connection with the scam website and its contents. MIDA have taken action by reporting to the relevant authorities.


C. Non-Involvement in the Publication 'The Showcase of Malaysian Industries Directory' & 'Malaysian Industries Authoritive Directory'


MIDA wishes to inform the public that it is not in any way associated with or involved in the publication entitled 'The Showcase of Malaysian Industries Directory' and 'Malaysian Industries Authoritive Directory'.

Please contact the Information and Communications Division, MIDA at 03-2263 2465 when in doubt and need clarification.
