Ji Shan Foundation Charity Scam Exposed!
This scam is actually an old RECYCLED scam. It was first posted in March 2019, the same day the Ji Shan Foundation Facebook page was created.
At that time, the Ji Shan Foundation scam urged people to donate to a different “father” – Chai Kok Weng, with a different set of photos.
That same scam was updated on 16 April 2020 to change the name of the benefactor to Sim Zhi Yew, with a different bank account!
Ji Shan Foundation STOLE the photos from Lim Ek who posted those photos on 4 December 2019.
As you can see in his post, his two children were admitted to the Parkcity Medical Centre for Influenza A (H1N1), not leukaemia.

Charity Scam : How To Avoid It?
While many of us want to help people in need, you should NEVER send money to a charity that you have not first verified to be a genuine charity.
You should certainly NOT send money to any person, without first confirming that he/she really needs the money for that critical surgery or medication.
It doesn’t matter if you are just sending a small token sum. Even ringgit / dollar you send them quickly becomes a substantial amount, and worse, encourages them to create new charity scams.
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. Also, many victims are unaware they were scammed, and thus never reported them to the police.
The safest thing to do is NOT to send anyone money. Visit them directly to ascertain their authenticity, and donate directly to them.
