KUALA SELANGOR: As more Malaysians buy goods online, an increasing number of them are falling prey to unscrupulous merchants.
With the current year-end festive season, new school term in January and the coming Chinese New Year celebration in February, the number of online scams is likely to soar as more consumers look for bargains.
Selangor Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Department enforcement chief Azman Adam said it has recorded more than 800 complaints pertaining to online transactions as of Dec 23 this year.
“From the cases recorded, the average yearly losses are several hundred thousand ringgit.
Azman was responding to questions on the growing trend of online purchases in Malaysia and the protection accorded to consumers in e-commerce.
He said many consumers, especially those who are still new to e-commerce, have fallen prey to “limited edition” offers, “best price” and “last day” offers by online sellers.
“When consumers fail to scrutinise the background and details of the sellers, they often end up receiving fake products or none at all.
“Therefore, it is always better to buy from sellers who are registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) with a valid company number,” he said, adding that consumers must always check before purchasing.
Meanwhile, the Penang Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) carried out a check at Cold Storage in Gurney Plaza as part of the nationwide Festive Season Price Control Scheme for Christmas celebrations.
Penang KPDNKK director Mohd Ridzuan AB Ghapar said the check was to ensure traders sell controlled price items within the ceiling prices set by the government and put pink tags on controlled price items to differentiate them from other items.
“This year, we received 12 complaints from consumers about traders not using pink price tags.
“The total compounds paid was RM2,200 and the items seized were worth RM254.50,” he told a press conference.
Among the list of price-controlled goods are live chicken, standard chicken, super chicken, imported turkey, chicken wings, local and imported boned mutton, chicken eggs from A to C grade, tomato and capsicum.
In West Malaysia, the list of controlled items also include mature live chickens and pork.
The public can channel complaints on traders not complying with regulations by contacting 03-80008000 (1Malaysia One Call Centre), Strategic Operations and Information Centre’s toll-free line 1-800-886-800 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or SMS to 15999 by typing “KPDNKK ADUAN

KUALA LUMPUR: The new economy requires more aggressive, dynamic and creative ventures that earn rural entrepreneurs their place on the global supply chain, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today.
He said without creativity and innovation driving consistent outputs of rural industry, its entreprenuers will be left behind as the world shifts towards a digital industry.
"We need to maximise digital technology and leverage on it to ensure our place on the global supply chain," said Najib in launching the Rural Entrepreneurs Carnival at the Putra World Trade Centre.
Also present were Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, his deputies Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi and Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub, as well as Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman.
Najib said rural-based small and medium industries had, during the 10th Malaysia Plan period, contributed to 33.4 percent of thw gross domestic product (GDP), 17.3 percent of exports and 57.8 percent of human resource supply.
"This shows that we need to establish our footing on the global supply chain in order to grow and remain competitive," said Najib.
He said rural entrepreneurs needed to develop their creativity in marketing their products on the global market.
"It is the digital age and this in the new normal, where products are moved on the global supply chain by cashless means and even without human contact," said Najib.
"It is all digitised and we need to be able to deal in this manner. These are skills that can be learned and developed, thus you should learn and develop yourselves."
Najib said under the 2017 Budget the government had allocated a total of RM1.04billion for various programmes geared towards driving rural industries and the 2018 Budget is set to see an increase.
