General Advisory: Claims About Resettlement Services by ICMC

It has come to our recent attention that there may be misleading claims suggesting that ICMC Malaysia and other notable international organisations were involved in offering resettlement services to refugees and asylum seekers for a fee.

We wish to state that ICMC Malaysia does not provide resettlement services, nor does it charge any fees for the services it offers. We take any allegations of misleading claims or false representation seriously as ICMC is dedicated to maintaining the trust and confidence of the communities we serve.

In light of these circumstances, we strongly advise refugees and asylum seekers to exercise caution and verify any claims related to resettlement services purportedly offered by ICMC. To safeguard against potential misinformation and fraud, individuals are encouraged to contact one of our official hotlines for verification.
