Genting Malaysia warns about online survey scam


Genting Malaysia is warning the public about an online survey scam said to be carried out in its name in conjunction with the group’s 25th anniversary.

In a statement on its website, the operator said that Genting is “not involved or associated in any way with this online survey. Please do not click on the link and refrain from circulating it.”

Genting, which operates the Resorts World Genting property in Malaysia’s Genting Highlands, didn’t give any details on what the survey scam was about.

Asia’s major gaming brands have been frequently targeted by scams that seek to capitalize on their names to run online gambling. Last year, Macau’s Galaxy Entertainment was forced to put out a statement distancing itself from sites using its name and brand. 

Earlier this year, the Philippines’ Okada Manila warned the public of online websites using its name.
