Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has cautioned the public not to fall prey to online scam promising freebies to mark the car company’s 80th anniversary.

In an advisory, TMP asked customers not to click on the link or forward the message as this well lead to a deceptive website.

“Recipients are strongly advised not to click on the link and to refrain from forwarding the message. The message leads to a deceptive website that will attempt to steal personal information and data,” the statement read.


In the event that the recipient has engaged with the link, it is best to change the passwords of concerned accounts and activate a 2-factor authentication to further improve security.

TMP is encouraging everyone to scrutinize every message received, most especially if they are promising prizes or free gifts for activities the recipient did not sign up for. It also reiterates that the company and its dealer network do not ask for any private information through unauthorized channels.

Customers are advised to only get legitimate information and promotions from Toyota Motor Philippines’ official website an social media pages:, on Facebook, @toyotamotorphilippines on Instagram, and @ToyotaMotorPH on Twitter.
