Macau Scam now using Pos Malaysia to dupe victims

POLICE have uncovered the latest method of the Macau Scam syndicate, which now uses the name of Pos Malaysia to dupe its victims.

Kelantan Commercial Crimes Investigation Department chief Superintendent Mohamed Zulmazi Che Daud said syndicate members would pose as Pos Malaysia staff and telephone potential victims, urging them to go to its office to collect a parcel.

“During the telephone call, they would ask the victim for a copy of the identity card and tell the individual to make payment into a bank account.

“The victim would only realise it’s a scam when there is no parcel for collection at the post office,” he told a press conference at the state police contingent headquarters in Kota Baru today.

Zulmazi, however, did not reveal the number of victims involved or losses incurred. – Bernama, December 18, 2018.
