Malacca's 1st Diabetic Clinic Opening

Warm Greetings from Mahkota Medical Centre.

Malaysia is leading in the prevalence of obesity among Southeast Asian countries. Almost one in two Malaysians are either overweight or obese, placing them at a high risk for diabetes.

One of the challenges in the diagnosis of diabetes is due to the non-existence of symptoms among its sufferers and also the lack of awareness and education among the public. What we need in Malaysia now is to increase the awareness and to start educating the public of how serious diabetes can be.

Mahkota Medical Centre inviting you and your esteem association’s members to be part of this momentous event as we launch the first diabetic clinic set up by a private hospital.

Below are the details:

                           Date      :               8th September 2012
          Time      :               10am
                                                  Venue      :               1st Flr, Function Hall, Mahkota Medical Centre

Please take note that the list is not exhaustive and only serves as a guide to members of the public based on information and queries received by BNM.The list will be updated regularly for public's reference.

Who may provide financial services in Malaysia?

Only financial institutions i.e. banksinsurance companies and takaful operators as well as money changers, remittance service providers and currency wholesalers (currently known as "the money services business") licensed by BNM under the relevant laws and regulations administered by BNM are allowed to provide financial services in Malaysia.
The list of the licensed financial service providers can be accessed via the following URL:

Why should consumers be careful when dealing with unregulated entities or persons?

  • Consequences:
    • Consumer protection under the laws administered by BNM IS NOT APPLICABLE should the members of the public choose to deal with the illegal financial service providers.
    • Members of the public who participate in the illegal financial activities could also BE CHARGED under the law as abetting the operators of such illegal activities.   
  • Thus, members of the public ARE ADVISED NOT TO:

How to detect an illegal scheme?

Members of the public are advised to be careful and not fall prey to these schemes. Be alert and look out for the following common features of these illegal schemes:
  • The approach by the operators may have been made by mail, telephone, Internet or in person, but the intention is always the same, that is, to take money from unsuspecting victim for goods or services that they have no intention to provide.
  • Schemes which promise interest rates, returns or profits, which are much higher than the returns offered by licensed financial institutions for their deposits.
  • The promises of high returns are aimed at attracting the members of the public to participate in the schemes and the investors may not be given copies of any documentation including agreements by the operators.
  • There is also no assurance that the operators of such schemes can continue to pay the high returns.
  • At the beginning of such schemes, the operators are able to use money received from subsequent depositors to pay high returns or to repay the principal amount to the earlier depositors.
  • However, the operators could not invest the deposits in equally or more lucrative ventures or investments and therefore unable to sustain the high returns or repayment promised to their depositors.

Please note that these schemes will fail eventually when there are no new deposits being continually received by the operators. At such time, the "get-rich-quick" schemes will collapse and the depositors or investors will lose their investments.

However, an unlocked vehicle door, gifts/wallets/purses left in plain sight, an unattended purse in a grocery cart while shopping, or mail left in an unsecured receptacle, are open invitations to thieves.
Details of our event is as per attached the leaflet with registration form for your information and it is Free of charge,
Those interested kindly confirm your attendance by fax or email the registration form to us at Fax :06-281 8408 or email: latest by 29 Sept 2012 .
