The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has identified a viral message which claims that members who worked between 1990 and 2018 are entitled to a RM6,000 incentive from the EPF. The EPF categorically states that the viral message and contents are FALSE and does not come from the EPF.
The message also has a link which will be directed to the fake EPF website, asking people to respond to a survey to check for their entitlement to the ‘incentive’ (see screenshot of fake website).

The EPF believes that this is an attempt to phish for members’ personal data for fraudulent purposes. Members are urged not to respond to such surveys nor provide their personal data to any unverified third party, and also not to spread the chain message any further.
