Imagine you tell someone you need a treatment that costs thousands. You say that you need to borrow some money and repay them. In this world, there are many good-hearted people. After some time, somebody steps up to help you. After they give you the money, you just vanish without a trace. They found out that you are a fraud. Can you imagine how they would feel?

According to the Department of Information Services Malaysia, fraudulent information can affect someone’s mental health. Therefore, we must always make sure that any information given is from the right source.
