BMW Group Malaysia highlights danger of scam emails
Kuala Lumpur. Following a spate of bogus emails across South East Asia, BMW Group Malaysia would like to emphasize that the organisation does not offer cash prizes or BMW nor MINI cars as part of free prize draws. An email entitled 'BMW Car International Promotion Program' which has been circulating the Internet is not a bonafide BMW Group campaign, and the entities 'BMW Lottery Department UK', nor 'The BMW International Awareness Promotions' have no relationship whatsoever with the BMW Group nor with BMW Group Malaysia and we have no relationship with the people responsible for issuing the notices.
Sashi Ambi, Corporate Communications Manager, BMW Group Malaysia in a statement said, "We are aware that there are and have been a number of similar emails in circulation and we are currently investigating how to prevent those responsible from using BMW's name in such a way. We advise anyone who receives the email to not enter into correspondence with the sender."
Example of the scam email is enclosed.
