Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) advised the public against a phishing scam using the brand’s name. Messages have been circulating in social media and other communication platforms.

According to TMP, the message— inviting recipients to click on the link for free gifts—claimed it is in celebration of Toyota’s 80th anniversary.

TMP made a quick announcement on the issue, for the safety and privacy of its customers.

“Recipients are strongly advised not to click on the link and to refrain from forwarding the message. The message leads to a deceptive website that will attempt to steal personal information and data,” the statement reads.

Further, the leading automotive manufacturer in the country said that in the event a recipient of the anomalous letter accesses the link, it is best to change the passwords of concerned accounts immediately and activate two-factor authentication to further improve security.

“TMP is encouraging everyone to scrutinize every message received, most especially if they are promising prizes or free gifts for activities the recipient did not sign up for,” the company noted.

It also reiterated that the company and its dealer network do not ask for any private information “through unauthorized channels.”

Moreover, TMP urged the public to get legitimate information and promotions from TMP’s official website and social media pages: toyota.com.ph, facebook.com/toyotamotorphilippines on Facebook, @toyotamotorphilippines on Instagram, and @ToyotaMotorPH on Twitter.
