Scammers these days are doing whatever it takes just to be able to scam someone.

In a post on 2 November by the Malaysian Commercial Crime Investigation Unit, it details the experience of a Malaysian with scammers.

Jenayah Tipu Panggilan : Menyamar Pos Laju

Fakta kes:
Mangsa 1/L cina telah mengalami kerugian RM 2.5 juta kerana…

Posted by Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersil – JSJK PDRM on Sunday, 1 November 2020

The post reads:

A Malaysian man lost RM2,500,000 to a syndicate who identified themselves as PosLaju. In the phone call, they said that the man had sent a parcel over to Sabah. The parcel contains a copy of an IC, ATM card and a chequebook. The syndicate then asked the man to bank-in money to two separate bank accounts.

Even if the modus operandi seems illogical, there are still some people out there who will be fooled by it.

PDRM advises Malaysians to:

  • Not pick up any phone calls from unknown or suspicious numbers.
  • Put down the phone if you feel that the call is very suspicious.
  • Check with relevant parties if the information given is true.

We hope that all Malaysians will be wary of this type of scams! Other than that, please do not click on unusual links sent to you on different platforms! You can also check if the person’s bank account is a scam, here‘s how.
