Since that this practice of illegally obtaining information of buyers either from "middle men" or directly from developers or banks are rampant.  I have decided to name and shame these property agents who practise this irresponsible act.

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.

I'm assuming you're buying the house for own stay? Now, let's consider the alternative, after getting your house key not even a single agent contact you bc technically there's no way to reach you.....lead time of getting a tenant is prolonged....and in the subsequent years you have to manually search for agents...now u decide!

P/s: Tarnishing someone's reputation might not be a good solution...i thought
