According to a report by Berita Harian, the suspect informed that the victim had LHDN arrears of RM38,600 before sending a form that needed to be filled immediately via message.

The victim was then instructed to complete all the forms provided, including asking the victim to provide an identity card number and an active bank account number.

The victim said that at first, she did not suspect anything other than fear. Hence why she immediately completed the form and sent it back through the same number that messaged her.
