Beware of fake BR1M Form

We mentioned about RM500 cash handouts for households earning RM3000 and less in our previous post about Malaysia budget 2012 and the news today reported that fake application forms for the scheme are being circulated.

Unlike the real form distributed by the Ministry of Finance where only basic information such as MyKad and handphone numbers are required, the fake form requires additional information such as bank account number and a copy of bank’s statement. According to the Ministry of Finance, bank accounts number is not needed as the aid will be given in cash.

Qualified individuals can get the application form for free at all Inland Revenue Board (IRB) branches and service centers, Information Department, Federal Development Department and the main lobby of the Ministry of Finance. The dateline to submit the form is January 10, 2012.

So, please be cautious when you are filling up the application form especially if you don’t get it from official resources. Check the form carefully and if it requires bank account number, then don’t fill it up and submit it. It’s better be safe than sorry!
