Columbia Asia Group of Hospitals has been made aware that there have been email scams impersonating Columbia Asia Malaysia targeting job seekers, especially foreign workers with a promise of employment at Columbia Asia Malaysia.
These emails contain fake appointment letters and contracts using the name “Columbia Asia Hospital Malaysia” requesting personal information from recipients. These have come from email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Columbia Asia Group of Hospitals does not send any of these fraudulent emails requesting personal information.
The fraudulent emails also include a link to a fake website: www.cah-my.com. This website has been created by the fraudsters, and is not owned or linked to Columbia Asia Malaysia in any way. We have reported this issue to the relevant authorities.
All official emails from Columbia Asia Group of Hospitals are sent from addresses ending with the domain, ‘@columbiaasia.com’ only. We will never send you an email requesting personal information from any other domains especially personal emails bearing generic domains such as @gmail, @yahoo, @hotmail and @outlook.
