Long before online scamming took place, some scammers approached you personally at malls, train stations, or tourist spots and convinced you to pay for donations or to purchase pirated goods at a high price.

Online scamming is undeniably the highlight now for its convenience, but some perpetrators are still physically and personally approaching targeted victims. Just recently, a video showing 2 scammers, allegedly from China attempting to scam an elderly in Genting Highlands went viral on social media.

The man who recorded the video was then approached by another woman who tried to look at what he was recording.

“You’re one of them, right?” the man asked.

He then approached the elderly and asked if the women were asking for money from him, to which the uncle nodded.

“They said they have no money to eat, right? Don’t give anything to them.”

The women immediately left when they knew they were not going to “earn” anything from the innocent uncle.

The video was initially shared on the Facebook page 云顶大新闻 (Genting News Group), but it didn’t take long for other pages to reshare the video and warn others about the possible scam they might encounter in Genting.

Just yesterday (May 8), Resorts World Genting commented on the original post in the Facebook group and assured the public that the visitors’ safety is their priority. They added that as of yesterday morning, the police had arrested 4 individuals from the scam syndicate.

“We have spotted 4 scam suspects, and the police is currently handling the matter,” Resorts World Genting said.

In the meantime, the organisation said that the security officers at the place will always monitor the activities that happen there.

As if online scamming is not notorious enough, it’s scary to imagine how tough it is to eliminate the scam syndicate as they tend to keep growing and continue to target gullible individuals.
