    Facebook showoffs can be booked

    PETALING JAYA: Civil servants and their wives who post pictures of expensive items such as branded handbags and watches, as well as expensive family holidays, could be giving themselves away.

    The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been following these social media postings especially on Facebook and Instagram.

    Besides high-ranking officials on holidays that include overseas golf trips, the middle and lower ranking ones are also being monitored as, in some cases, their lifestyles are not commensurate with their earnings.

    The Star has been informed that in one particular case in Sabah, a group of civil servants who went to London on a holiday became the talking point when they showed off their holidays on Facebook.

    According to a state MACC source, the commission does follow up leads from Facebook postings on people living beyond their means.

    Postings of expensive overseas holidays on Facebook raises questions if the person, particularly a civil servant, looks to be living beyond his or her means.
