Lecturer loses whopping RM1.3 million to scammers

JOHOR BARU: A lecturer lost RM1.3 million to bogus policemen who accused her of being involved in money-laundering and drugs.

The 41-year-old woman claimed that a man claiming to be ‘Inspector Ku’ ordered her to open a new bank account to resolve the case. He then transferred out all the money from the account.

Johor police chief Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said the woman lodged a report yesterday.

“The victim initially received a phone call from someone who said he was from the Health Ministry. He had claimed that she was involved in the falsification of a Covid-19 report in Sabah.

“She denied the allegation and then was connected to an individual, allegedly a police officer from the Sabah contingent police headquarters, named ‘Inspektor Ku’.

“The man told her that she was involved in money-laundering and drugs,” Kamarul Zaman told a press conference at the Johor police contingent headquarters here today.

Kamarul Zaman said the woman was then asked to open a bank account with a phone number given by the ‘officer’.

He said the woman followed instructions to transfer all her money into the account for safekeeping while the case was investigated.

“Between Oct 17, 2022 and Nov 25, 2022, the woman transferred a total of RM1.3 million into the new account.

“She realised she was cheated when the money in the account was transferred to several other unknown accounts.”
