To avoid business scammers, average people will do online searches first prior to buying the product or services. They’ll type a company or product name into Google with keywords like ‘review’, ‘complaint’ or ‘scam’. Or they can even search for phone numbers to see if other people have reported the business as scams or otherwise.
The wiser consumers on the other hand, will straight go to the MYDATA portal, and quickly search for that business name. They’ll check whether the business is registered with SSM or not, who’s the owner, its financial statement and other validation points available.
Unlike Google, MYDATA’s information is quicker, accurate, detail and has more quality.
