TelBru warns of pop-up message scams

Telekom Brunei Berhad (TelBru) has received information from members of the public that they received online pop-up mobile messages that ask for personal information such as name, bank account numbers, birthdates and addresses. TelBru informed that these are scams aimed at extracting personal information from unassuming Internet users.  The scam, which includes the unauthorised use of TelBru’s logo, directs users to a survey that, upon completion, prompts the user to pay a certain amount of money for the delivery of their “gift”.
