The rise of scammers has been a concerning thing in Malaysia. Typically, they would infiltrate via calls and Whatsapp messages. However, it seems that things have taken a notch nowadays as Khairul Aming’s image is now being used to scam Malaysians for certain products and services.
Scammers pretending to be Khairul Aming
Khairul Aming is one of Malaysia’s beloved influencers. There have been little to no complaints about his digital footprint as he has been rather unproblematic. Furthermore, scammers using his image on social media could be a potential target point for them trying to damage his reputation as well.
Netizens have tagged the local authorities on X, citing that this is a criminal offense. This is due to the fact that someone’s image is being used without consent on social media. Unfortunately, this has happened before as well.
