In recent times, the alarming rise of criminal scammers in our country has taken a distressing turn, with their deceptive tactics becoming increasingly cunning and creative. It is crucial for us to raise awareness and show concern for the victims and potential targets of these scams. 

 

One such scheme that has been causing significant concern involves scammers exploiting the excitement around wedding parties by tricking unsuspecting individuals into downloading malware-infected application files.

Once installed on the victim’s smartphone, these malicious applications grant the scammer access to their personal and financial data, resulting in devastating consequences. 

Adding to the complexity of the issue, the growing popularity of digital wedding invitation cards has made it even harder for victims to detect the scam, as their genuine excitement blinds them to the potential dangers lurking within.

 

As a society, it is essential that we step up and support our older relatives and parents who may be less knowledgeable about online scams. We must remind them to be more cautious and never install or click on any links from unknown sources. Scammers deliberately target those who may not be well-versed in information technology yet possess significant savings, making our parents particularly vulnerable to such schemes.

Sadly, this is not the first instance where scammers have caused substantial financial losses to Malaysians. It is disheartening to note that professionals such as doctors and engineers have fallen victim, but the impact is even more severe when low-income individuals, already struggling to make ends meet, are targeted.

 

Staying informed and educating our loved ones about the risks and precautionary measures, we can help protect them from falling victim to these unscrupulous scams.
