Now, don't get me wrong, I have sent the information to the relevant authorities such as SKMM and PDP, but it seems like nothing is working. So I'll just put my findings here. You be the judge.
If the mod feels this is inappropriate, please feel free to delete this. I personally feel that the cavalier attitude of people who handle personal data should be made aware that there must be consequences. Our authorities are not doing enough (see the Great Malaysian Data Breach as reported by LYN) hence we must protect ourselves.
I think the only way is to hurt their reputation. They must know that this practice is not OK.
1. Simon Realty E (3) 1451
Agent: Nicky Ling Tel No: 017-9888339
Background: I'm the owner of a newly VPed SOHO and received a message. I called him posing as an interested person and he said he bought the information from a so-called "middle man" named "Joseph". When asked further on how to contact this "Joseph" he said he will message me, but up till today no news.
2. Technilai Estate Agents E (3) 1527
Agents: CK Yap Tel No: 017-8822191 and Irene Tel No: 012-337 2998
Background: Same property. Whatsapp and asked him what is the source of the information. He came up with a made up story of one "Mr Lee" another owner, who passed on my information. Pressed on further, but he couldn't come up with the source.
I have a few more spam and will update once I get their company's name.
The information here is true at time of writing.
P/s: Tarnishing someone's reputation might not be a good solution...i thought
