Sime Darby: Developing Sustainable Futures
Important Scam Notice
Scam

Sime Darby Berhad would like to alert members of the public on the existence of false documents purporting to be purchase orders (PO) being sent to third parties under the pretext that the PO came from Sime Darby. The false documents carry the Sime Darby name, logo, Sime Darby tagline "Developing Sustainable Futures", Sime Darby's registered address and a Gmail address incorporating Sime Darby's name. This is a scam as both the PO and the Gmail account do not belong to Sime Darby or any of its group of companies.

The false documents are aimed at inducing third parties to send their goods via a shipping vessel to Sime Darby PLC, a company which is not registered with Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) as well as not part of the Sime Darby Group.

Sime Darby Berhad would like to reiterate that Sime Darby PLC is not a company within the Sime Darby Group. The Sime Darby Group has never awarded nor entered into any contract of any kind under the name of Sime Darby PLC.

The public should be wary of such entities/companies and individuals, and in the case of doubt, is advised to contact Sime Darby Berhad immediately. The Sime Darby Group will not be responsible to any persons, firms or companies who fail to take the necessary steps or actions to verify the identity of such entities or individuals, and suffer any loss or damage as a result.

If in doubt, please send your queries to: communications@simedarby.com or whistleblowing@simedarby.com
