It has come to our attention that there has been a Facebook advertisement which is impersonating and misleading users to join an investment WhatsAapp group chat under our company name. The scammers are even using Whitman’s company’s logo and registered licenses with Bank Negara and the Securities Commission of Malaysia to give a sense of legitimacy to their modus operandi.
We wish to clarify that we do not operate the account nor are we related to it in any way. Our team has reported to the relevant authorities to put a stop to this scam.
Please be aware that Whitman Independent Advisors do not invite clients to directly invest in any investment packages with promised returns, and money back guaranteed. We wish to remind the public to exercise caution and not to respond or reply to such inquiries.
