  #1 Old 12-06-2007 Default Kolej Bumiputera terbaik dan terbesar di Malaysisa! (yeah right)

Anyone received a call from someone that's offering a higher national diploma course at some college in Negeri Sembilan who claims to be "kolej bumiputera terbaik dan terbesar di malaysia"? Also claims to have the most students receiving scholarships (convertible loan actually) from MARA. If you get CGPA 3.5, you can get a scholarship to do a degree at University East London for just 1.5 years.

They asked me to go to Mantin for a taklimat and interview.

Did some research and I think it's a scam. Link below shows...

I'm just here doing a service so that other recommers won't get cheated by these people.

I'm a chinese, and I got a call from them a couple of months ago, stating that I got an offer to study in their higher national diploma course.

how can it be a bumiputera college if they're calling non-bumi students?

@Fourthshifter: Don't know.

@liangfuhan: I guess they must be really desperate to get money from fresh victims.

@Butters: I think they know more than just your phone number. I've read around and some even said they came to your doorstep to convince you to enter the college.

This is disturbing, someone should notify the authorities to conduct the relevant investigations into this. It seems to me that the extent of their operation is quite large, considering a few of you got their calls.

The better alternative is through blogs and other alternative media.
(It works well on things like SMS scam incident, the Dr. MCMC hoo haa)

Send an Emai lto JeffOoi to expose such a matter.
