It was reported that the suspects had solicited and received bribes worth RM18 million which are about 15% to 35% of 110 personal loans. These bribes were received in return for approving funding applications from applicants who were not eligible for loans.

Harian Metro reported that the MACC also seized cash amounting to about RM69,000 and several luxury watches and mobile phones from the suspects amounting to more than RM100,000.
