Pheim Asset Management Sdn Bhd, Pheim Islamic Asset Management Sdn Bhd and Pheim Unit Trusts Berhad (collectively known as “Pheim”) have been made aware on 29 November 2023 of a suspected scam, actively viral through several social media platforms, including but not limited to Facebook and Instagram, impersonating as Pheim’s Founder/ Executive Chairman/ Chief Strategist – Dr Tan Chong Koay.
The suspected scammer used an unauthorised picture, full name of our Dr Tan Chong Koay and an unknown contact number, which does not belong to any Pheim’s representative, to send unsolicited messages from this unknown number, disguising members of the public on some fictitious events (e.g. 2023 Malaysia Financial Summit, online teaching, etc.) allegedly organized by Pheim or Dr Tan Chong Koay. Pheim have reported this suspected scam to the Police and the relevant Authorities.
Pheim warn the public that it does not have any affiliation or connection with these fictitious events and advise the public to be cautious of individuals or organizations claiming or promising dazzling returns or offering exclusive deals with exorbitant profits overnight. Members of the public are advised to exercise caution when approached by unsolicited investment offers, especially those urging urgency or requesting for personal information or upfront payments.
