SANDAKAN: Cyber fraud and identity theft could be avoided if consumers exercise restrain and caution while interacting online.
Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) chairman Datuk Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi warned consumers not to readily divulge personal information through the internet to unidentified persons.
Speaking at a media conference in conjunction with an MCMC awareness programme here today, he further warned that consumers could be held responsible for any contentious material they uploaded on the internet.
He advised consumers who had fallen victim to dubious online transactions, to report the crime to the police before referring their complaint to the MCMC.
