Performance Management and Delivery Unit warns of scam involving money deposits
Posted on December 9, 2010, Thursday
KUALA LUMPUR: The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) in the Prime Minister’s Department said yesterday it had never appointed any individual, company or organisation to invite the public to deposit money with the promise of getting them grants for projects.
In a statement on its website, Pemandu warned the public to be wary of perpetrators claiming to offer them access to National Key Economic Areas/National Key Result Areas (NKEA/NKRA) grants that were part of the Economic Transformation Programme/Government Transformation Programme, respectively.
“Pemandu would like to advise the public that it does not distribute grants via any individual/company/organisation, nor has it appointed any company to secure projects on its behalf.
“Anybody who has been requested to deposit a sum of money to secure such a grant is urged to make a police report at the nearest police station immediately,” it said.
Meanwhile, a Pemandu source, when contacted by Bernama, said Pemandu would lodge a police report soon but declined to elaborate.
