Ever had a horrible experience with an online seller that left you losing money or being shocked by the sky high prices of meat during your grocery shopping?

Instead of suffering in silence, Malaysians can actually officially lodge their complaints against irresponsible sellers with the Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs Ministry’s (KPDNHEP) smartphone application!

Help is just one app away

Ez ADU is a smartphone application developed by KPDNHEP that allows users to make any complaints directly to KPDNHEP so that appropriate action can be taken.

With just one app, users can make a complaint in 4 simple steps:

  1. Key in details of the complaint
  2. Complaint report
  3. Geo tagging
  4. Include photos or videos as evidence

KPDNHEP outlines that examples of misleading practices include:

  • Fraudulent Services
  • Fraudulent Pricing
  • Internet Transaction Fraud
  • Sales of Petroleum Substances
  • No Price Tag
  • Motor Vehicle Workshop
  • Telecommunications Services
  • Scams Scratch and Win
  • Fraudulent Hire Purchase Agreement
  • Malpractice of Direct Selling

So this means you can complain about misleading products by online sellers, overcharging at restaurants for water, retailers not displaying prices of goods, abnormally high prices of meats, eggs, poultry and more.
