Am Curious about how good is digi protecting the consumer data because recently just registered new number with DIGI and this the number have yet to be used for any other subscriptions, and this number is not even shared to any party or any agencies, but today received a call from  insurance agents and from  other product sales agents, the questions is how do they get ur name and phone number ? So is Digi protecting consumer data well, if so how can a new number just registered and not used yet  "promoted" number are known to all this party and worst they even know ur name ? Can we as consumer act on Digi for not complying with PDPA policy ? Anyone else have the same response ?

Hi..I am digi ex-user. Recently I received a calling from  0162211800 said that she was tele marketing  and I was selected to get a better postpaid promotion from digi. The plan that she offered me is Postpaid 48 20gb with many benefit inside. After 6mths the 20gb will become 25gb. But, the end of our conversation, she want  to verified my IC number but I didn't gave her with the reason security. And she mentioned she will post the new SIMCARD with register mail and asked me to call her in this number 03-55672497 (ms Nabilah) after I really sure that was not a scam. I'm in doubt. Can I  feedback her because the plan that she offered me look attractive. HELP..

Hi there, 

 

My mum has been recently receiving calls from a 'Digi' rep mentioning that her phone bill is overdue of a certain amount.  They would either SMS or call her (the call was from a lady).  The recent one was asking her to pay for the overdue bill of a certain amount by 21st August which was not the same as the official due date in the digi App. 

 

One of the numbers was 01668227131. Definitely a scam. 

 

How do I officially report this to Digi? The customer rep I called via the digi helpline wasn't very helpful in this.

Hi, my name  have been used to apply for a wifi. I’ve reported it and send the relevant documentation for fraud case. I’ve not receive any respond from Digi. I’ve been bombarded with sms and emails from collections to pay for the wifi. I’ve replied and forwarded the emails to help@digi and still no respond. No calls no emails, may I know what action has been taken to solve this matter, other than sending me messages to pay, pay , pay?

Hi DIGI team,

 

Can you guys do something about the unauthorize registration which SMS send by DIGI as below to me.

 

RM0.00: Successful registration. No subscription fee. Price: RM1.00/sms. MFDF sms/month. Renewal on 02/11/2019. To cancel, send stop mfdf to 36666

 

How come DIGI can approved for the registration without the customer consent? Any supporting doc to support the registration since it's going to be on renewal basis.

 

You can't just approved a registration with only  customer phone number, it's not an appropiate etique.

 

Frankly speaking, there are too much loop in your guys approval process.

 

Kindly do something about it and at the same time, please cancel the subscription.
