Most of us have limited boundaries regarding our close ones, and scammers take advantage of that.

In the most recent scam case, a 31-year-old woman has fallen victim to a scammer pretending to be her brother.

It is said that the woman who is the manager of a company was contacted by an unknown number claiming to be her 29-year-old brother.

The message sent on WhatsApp instructed her to transfer RM570,174 and said that it was for a business purpose.

Iskandar Puteri district police chief ACP Rahmat Ariffin said:

“The phone number was (in fact) not the same as her brother’s real phone number. But not suspecting anything amiss, the victim transferred the amount to the account given by the scammer.”

According to BERNAMA, the victim’s younger brother denied that he had asked her for money. So, she went to the police station to lodge a police report on the scam.

Sad Woman

ACP Rahmat Ariffin says that an investigation paper was opened by the Commercial Crime Investigation Division of the Iskandar Puteri district police headquarters per Section 420 of the Penal Code.

He also advises public members always to be wary and vigilant of messages and phone calls from unknown numbers and to check first.


We hope this serves as a reminder for everyone to be more careful.
