SIBU – A massive crowd, some from far lying villages came to the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) office to collect the RM500 government assistance help cash, but left empty handed after learning that it was merely a rumor.

According to the Borneo Post Online, the villagers came after hearing rumors that the money had been disbursed starting today, with some claiming their friends had already received such funds.

The government in previous statements have noted that those receiving the aid will receive confirmation letters.
