Multiple social media posts share a misleading claim that all Malaysians are entitled for a monthly aid of 300 Malaysian ringgit ($67) in the form of electronic cash. The claim is based on clickbait blog posts. In fact, the Malaysian government has refuted the claim, saying there is no such financial aid. The blog posts actually mention a financial aid scheme for lower income residents in the Malaysia state of Selangor.
