Cops Warn Public Of Money Scam Syndicates
According to Bukit Aman’s Commercial Crime Investigation Department’s (CCID) statistics, RM177.15mil was lost to conmen and money scam syndicates last year.
Out of the 16,690 cases reported to CCID last year, 13,724 or 80.9% of cases were solved.
Federal CCID director Comm Datuk Seri Mortadza Nazarene warned the public that when the offer is too good to be true, then it is most probably a scam. Despite the numerous warnings and awareness by the authorities on the danger of money scams, there were still people who were ignorant and continue to fall prey to these conmen.
He added that the public must remember that there is no such thing as easy money. By thinking so, the public are making themselves an easy target for the scammers waiting to prey on such victims.
