Gambarr Dotcom PLT, known also as Gambarr Malaysia has recently learned of a WhatsApp scam involving persons posing as company officers, HR Personnels, or falsely claiming to represent the company or company group affiliates, while soliciting the opportunity to become hiring agents on behalf of the company.
Examples of solicitations are as follows.

They received your number from a job recruitment site such as Jobstreet, LinkedIn etc. The role is a part-time job, flexible and the scope is to increase social media celebrities exposure on Instagram. They will first pay you after completion of a number of simple tasks via Touch n Go app and ask you to join a Telegram group. Hereafter, you will be taken to an external site. For the new mission, different IPs are being recruited to assist in hyping cryptocurrencies and places are limited. Merchant has paid the deposit and it will be returned after 10 minutes. Prepayment is required. RM60 cash back RM90, RM300 cash back RM390, RM500 cash back RM650 and the numbers go up.

The company and officers have absolutely no involvement with these fraudulent practices and do not make such solicitations.
Please be aware of this scam, and if you receive WhatsApp solicitations from anyone posing as the company or company officers that appears even remotely suspicious, please do not reply them. We strongly urge everyone to refrain from engaging with these corporate scammers and immediately contact the local authority on this.
