Some of the Internet media these days have reported false negative news about Harfam, stating that PT Harfam Jaya Makmur is one of the companies that are categorized investment scams whereas the official release on the website of the OJK (Financial Services Authority) never mentioned that PT. Harfam Jaya Makmur is an investment scam company. In the reports, OJK only mentions that PT. Harfam Jaya Makmur is one of 262 companies whose activities do not get permission from OJK and the products or services are not supervised by OJK (http://ojk.go.id/daftar-perusahaan-yang-tak-mendapatkan-izin-oleh-ojk). Just because Harfam does not get permission from OJK, we cannot say that Harfam Jaya Makmur is an investment scam.
In another news release, OJK mentions the characteristics of investment scam, including:
- Promising large investment benefits (profits) that are too good to be true
- The investment is not offered through broadcasters (TV and radio) but offered only via internet/online; the investment has no clear business domicile and we cannot interact physically with the company
- The investment works like a chain: member gets member, but there are no goods used as the object of investment, or if there are goods, the price of these goods is not reasonable if compared with similar goods sold in the market
- The public funds are managed / reinvested in overseas projects
- Using public figures, officials, religious leaders, celebrities
- Promising luxury goods and traveling abroad as the bonus
- Associating investment with charity or worship
- Giving impression that the investment is risk-free
- Giving impression that the investment is secured or affiliated with large/multinational companies
- The investment does not have business license, or if it has one, the business license does not correspond to the business activities conducted.
Of the 10 characteristics above, we believe none is identical to what we are doing, Moreover, we are not an investment company but we are working based on our official legality. PT. Harfam Jaya Makmur is a company engaged in the business of Services, Commerce, Agriculture and Industry.
So far, PT. Harfam Jaya Makmur focuses as a company engaged in the environmental conservation and empowerment in the form of services of planting, maintenance and utilization of teak trees so that it can have high economic value and give positive impact on the environment and surrounding communities.
Harfam Jaya Makmur plants, nurses, and cultivates teak trees using the concept of partnership with public, focused on individuals. From the partnership concept, we can simply describe that PT Harfam Jaya Makmur is the party that has the resources in the form of:
- Teak seedlings
- Research and nursery laboratory
- Expertise in building a teak forest
These six sources, combined with resources in the form of capital from the public, form the business currently undertaken by PT Harfam Jaya Makmur. The business activities have both financial and conservation benefits. What is paid by the public to PT. Harfam Jaya Makmur in the framework of partnership of cultivation and utilization of teak trees can be seen in the form of:
- Teak forest manufacture land which can be accessed anytime by the partners who have signed cooperation contracts with PT Harfam Jaya Makmur
- To the land that has passed its cropping period, the form can be seen from the teak trees themselves
The “Green for Wealthiness” concept owned by PT Harfam Jaya Makmur, collaborating three pillars of sustainability (People, Planet, Profit), which is part of Harfam brand tagline “Nurturing Future” has gained appreciation from the international community as one of the innovative concepts of sustainable environmental development.

Harfam Jaya Makmur strives to be a company that empowers and preserves teak forests, not only in Indonesia, but also in the world. From our developing company, we can see that this company can give a lot of value, not only financial value, but also environmental, ecology, conservation, and culture values. PT Harfam Jaya Makmur also preserves the social values, especially the forest communities. The empowerment and cooperation programs carried out so far in Bondowoso and Situbondo have employed + 1,000 daily workers from the surrounding communities. Additionally, Harfam provides added value for the environment, one of which is by empowering critical lands to be greener by the planting of teak in those areas.
