Kuching Marathon 2015 participants have recently been a targeted by groups believed to be scammers.
These scammer’s have been reported to have sent out short messaging service (SMS) messages to unsuspecting participants, claiming that they are issuing a refund for the event which would be held on 16 August 2015.
A facebook statement by the Kuching Marathon Association (KMA) confirmed that such message was never sent by the association, and that they have never requested for registered participants name and bank details using text messages.
The association furter explains that no refund is in fact possible if one refers to the Rules and Regulations of the Kuching Marathon 2015.
The Kuching Marathon Association therefore hopes the public, especially participants of the Kuching Marathon to ignore such text message, and they are taking the matter seriously.
