SHAH ALAM, 19 Sept — Ketua Polis Selangor Datuk Mazlan Mansor (dua, kanan) menunjukkan gambar suspek ‘African Scam’ yang ditahan pada sidang media di Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Selangor hari ini. Turut sama Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersil (JSJK) Selangor ACP Harjinder Kaur Gurdial Singh (kanan).

According to Mazlan, with the arrests, police have solved 13 African Scam cases involving losses incurred by victims amounting to RM371,420 (USD $89,811.11).

He said all the cases were being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

In the meantime, he said that for the first period of this year until Sept 15, 262 African Scam cases involving “parcel scams”, “love scams” and “escrow scams” were reported involving losses amounting to RM16.9 million (USD $3,868,880.00).

We have advised the people many times, but still, a lot of cases like this keep occurring. Recently, a 26-year-old female doctor got duped by a bogus doctor whom she befriended through a website and fell in love with the suspect and made 13 transactions amounting to RM70,000 (USD $16,926.35) to the man.

Hence, people are advised to be cautious in using social media applications and not be easily deceived. Also, be reminded that the act of handing over bank account access with pin numbers to criminals can cause the account owner to be charged under Section 424 of the Penal Code,” he said.  [This is a reminder that not all countries are tolerant of money laundering even if you are a victim of a scam, RSN]

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
