PETALING JAYA: E-commerce platform Shopee has warned the public against individuals impersonating Shopee employees online, where they offer employment opportunities, cash rewards and lucky draw prizes
In a statement, Shopee said it does not employ any individuals to recruit employees through messaging platforms.
It said it only hosts contests such as lucky draws through its official app, social media pages and verified WhatsApp business account.
“Shopee wishes to remind Malaysians to avoid these scams and not to fall prey to these fake employment offers or rewards,” it said.
“Should any member of the public find themselves being offered questionable job opportunities or contests, or have fallen victim to such scams, please contact the nearest police station and file a police report immediately.”
Shopee said it will continue to work closely with the authorities in tackling these scams.
