Face Mask Recycling Scammers Exposed!

Malaysian netizens have not only exposed a face mask recycling operation, they also compiled a list of known face mask scammers!

Please SHARE this out, and help WARN EVERYONE about the dangers of recycled face masks!


Face Mask Recycling : What Is It?

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are massive shortages of 3-ply face masks across the world.

Unscrupulous scalpers also hoarded large quantities, forcing many people to either pay absurdly high prices or go without protection.

But even worse than scalpers are those who collect and recycle discarded face masks!

What they do is collect discarded face masks from rubbish bins, wash and dry them, and then pack them to sell as new face masks!

We had earlier exposed a really dirty Indonesian face mask packing operation, that could be part of a face mask recycling operation.

Face Mask Recycling Exposed In Cheras!

Malaysian netizens were able to take photos of a face mask recycling operation that was carried out in the open in Cheras.

Two men can be seen sitting in a gazebo watching over face masks that they laid out on the grass to dry. A large number of face masks were also seen hanging from nearby railings.


Face Mask Recycling : The Final Product

These are purportedly pictures of recycled face masks that have been packed after being washed and dried.

We have no idea if they are related to the pictures above, or a shipment that someone received.

But what is obvious is that while the face masks looks pretty clean, their straps look dirty.


Face Mask Recycling : List Of Scammers?

Malaysian netizens are also sharing this list of face mask scammers. We have no idea if they are selling recycled face masks, or scammed buyers in other ways – sending them the wrong kind of masks, or not sending anything at all!

Note : We cannot vouch for the authenticity of this list, so please use it as a cautionary note.

In Malaysia, you can also use this Commercial Crime Investigations Division page* to check if a bank account number or telephone number has been reported to the Royal Malaysian Police.

* However, please note that the CCID database is not comprehensive, because scammers can easily change their bank accounts and telephone numbers.

Face Mask Recycling : How To Prevent It?

To prevent these criminals from recycling and reselling used face masks, do your part to destroy your face mask after using it.

Before throwing your face mask into the rubbish bin, CUT OFF the straps (safer), or CUT the face mask in half, with a pair of scissors.

Make sure you wash your hands and your scissors with soap or a hand sanitiser after you throw away the destroyed face mask.
