The Inland Revenue Board (IRB) has warned the public against e-mail or SMS offering a 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) insurance service, saying it has not issued any such messages.

In a statement on Friday, the board noted that there had been numerous enquiries from people who had allegedly received such messages offering a BR1M insurance service called i-BR1M

“IRB confirms that we have neither issued any e-mail nor SMS through any officer to any applicant or recipient,” read the statement.

The statement also asked for all those who have received the e-mail or sms to delete it and not provide the sender any feedback.

Public who would require further clarification can either visit the official BR1M website at or call 1-800-88-2716.
