For decades, Genting Highlands hotel and apartment complex Amber Court has had a reputation for being haunted.

Fables relating to the property have circulated and grown over the years, so much so they have taken a life of their own.

At a press conference on June 22, its management committee came forward to push back against these rumours and threatened to take legal action against these claims.

"None of us has ever seen a ghost"

The committee chairman said they are within their legal rights to take action against those who make up supernatural happenings in Amber Court to play up the rumours, reported Oriental Daily.

This group being targeted to stand down on their tall tales includes feng shui masters, internet celebrities, netizens and YouTubers.

"Their allegations are baseless. None of us has ever seen a ghost let alone been disturbed by supernatural activity at the apartment," said the chairman, according to The Star.

He emphasised that this is a serious matter and some visitors have trespassed into the residents' homes in the middle of the night while filming.

The actions of these people who have "nothing better to do" is "very unacceptable", he said.

Stop spreading false information

The chairman suggested that those who spread rumours are doing it for their own benefit to chase clout and warned them to stop spreading false information about the building, or risk legal action.

During the press conference, the committee played videos from their phones to show reporters how content creators would add fake crying sounds and use actors in their ghost hunting videos.

They also held up screenshots of a WhatsApp conversation where one such video labelling it as "Asia's scariest hotel" was shared. The video has since been taken down from YouTube.
