Yet another victim fell prey to an online scam and this time, it comes in the form of cheap & affordable food offers.

According to a report by Sin Chew Daily, a woman encountered a local vendor a few days back who offered affordable roasted meats. The screenshot of the menu shows that a portion of 500g of char siew costs only RM15 and a whole roasted duck costs only RM18. 

That is weirdly & suspiciously cheap!

As the price is proven to be cheaper than most of the eateries that offer a similar menu, the woman decided to contact them via WhatsApp to know more about the deal. The online vendor asked if she has registered with their membership application which would entitle her to a 30% discount. 

As the woman was interested in the deal, she asked her daughter to help in the registration which would require the download of an Android Application Package (APK). 

Remember about an online maid scam that we’ve recently written about? In that incident, the victim could not get the transactions through despite multiple attempts and he was told that he could make the payments manually when the maid reached his house, only for him to realise a whopping amount of RM30,000 vanished from his account. The situation is similar in this woman’s case.

After multiple attempts, she reached out to customer service and they told her that the payments can be done manually. The “customer service” had the audacity to ask if the woman would like to add on to her orders.

That was when she received some notifications from the bank which revealed that an amount of RM7,431 has been transferred from her bank account to another account known as Jedry Bin Jiru.

She was left with only RM20 in her account after the unintended transactions!

After the incident, she immediately lodged a police report. As the scams nowadays mostly involve links and app installations, it is highly advised that you abandon the transaction immediately if you happen to find yourself under similar circumstances.
