Last Update: 16/08/2019

KEPALA BATAS, Aug 16 (Bernama) -- A factory worker was duped into parting with her savings of RM20,000 after a man posing as a police inspector made her believed that she was linked to a drug and money laundering case.

Seberang Perai Utara Police chief ACP Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the 51-year-old woman received a call from the man alleging she was a suspect in the case.

“The suspect later told her to transfer money into the bank account provided by him for investigation purpose and for her safety,” he said in a statement here today.

The woman panicked and made a cash transfer of RM20,000 into the account, he said.

 Meanwhile, in a separate incident, Noorzainy said a 35-year-old civil servant was conned RM4,700 by a phone scam syndicate who was using the same modus operandi.
