Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) urges the public to ignore an SMS scam attempting to defraud victims with fake compensation linked to the recent major power outage.

The SMS claimed that those affected by the power outage on 27 July will receive RM100 as compensation in their Touch ‘n Go eWallet and asked unwitting victims to click on the link sent to check their balance.

According to TNB’s Facebook post, users are advised not to click on the link although the SMS is sent from TNB’s own number which is 15454.

To be safe, users are urged to check with TNB to verify any information.

Previously, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan announced that consumers, especially traders, can claim for losses suffered during the power outage from TNB.

However, the details about the rebate will only be presented in Parliament on 4 August.
