It’s often the case that when a model is in great demand, there will be people trying to use scams to mislead people who are eager to get the new vehicle quickly. According to Perodua, two scams have been detected since the launch of its new Ativa SUV on March 3.
“We have discovered at least two fraudulent rebate offers online for the newly-launched Perodua Ativa,” said Perodua President and CEO, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad, confirming that the promotions did not originate from Perodua or any of its outlets or authorised dealers nationwide.
According to Dato’ Zainal, some scammers have posed as Perodua sales advisors before and lured potential victims into placing their new car purchase deposits into personal bank accounts. Obviously, when making any payments, you should never pay to an individual’s account and always make payment to a company account. If you are suspicious, it is worth calling up the company to confirm the bank account details.
Perodua urges both existing and potential customers to only deal with its authorised sales advisors to avoid being deceived by scams. The company offers this list of Do’s and Don’ts for customers:
