Shell Malaysia wishes to warn members of the public of the following scam. It has come to Shell's attention that Short Messaging System (SMS) text messages are being sent to people claiming that they have won prizes from Shell Malaysia. Typically the sms will tells the SMS recipient that they have won a cash prize from Shell.
Please do not reply but ignore the sms. Shell Malaysia does NOT use text messages to communicate to our contest winners.
All winner announcements for contests run by Shell are advertised in the media and available on the Shell Malaysia website www.shell.com.my. Winners will also receive a phonecall informing them of their win by a Shell-appointed agency. At which point, Shell's agency will need to verify the winner's name, NRIC and address for the prizes to be couriered to the winners. Shell does NOT require any bank account numbers, etc. If ever in doubt, please do check the website to ensure that you are indeed a Shell contest winner.
