Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is urging the public to ignore an SMS scam attempting to scam victims with fake compensation related to the recent major power outage.
The SMS claimed that those affected by the July 27 power outage would receive RM100 in compensation in their Touch ‘n Go eWallet and urged unknowing victims to click the link sent to check their balance.
According to TNB’s Facebook post, although the SMS is sent from TNB’s own number, 15454, users are advised not to click on the link.
For safety’s sake, users are urged to check with TNB to verify all information.
Earlier, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan announced that consumers, especially traders, could claim their losses suffered during the blackout from TNB.
However, the details of the discount will not be presented in Parliament until August 4th.
