Attention, Scam!

Currently, scammers have built a dedicated website, mobile app and social media profiles, where they propose that Kazakh nationals invest their money to what they say is National Company “KazMunayGas”. In consideration, the scammers promise a fast return from sales of oil and gas.

KazMunayGas would like to assert that it does not raise any funds of the Kazakh nationals for any investment projects. The advertisement being spread is misleading and fraudulent.

We are asking the Kazakh people to be alert and to trust the official sources only.

Please bear in mind that the information on the company’s operations is posted only on the official website and on our pages in the social media, such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Telegram.
