Their charge carries a maximum penalty of five years’ jail term and a fine for each count. The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges read before magistrate Nurunaim Abdullah.

They were denied bail and November 23 has been fixed for mention and appointment of counsel. The duo, who were studying at a private university, entered the country in 2016 on student visas. However, it is more likely that they were working for a Nigerian Scammer Cartel to engage in money laundering through Malaysian banks.

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.
