Scammers in Malaysia Caught!

Postby mokot » Tue Jun 22, 2010 2:15 pm

The police in Malaysia did a great job recently by arresting 11 Nigerian "students" involved in internet love scams. These Nigerians were based in Penang, but mostly claimed to be students in Kuala Lumpur. The news was reported widely not just by the local newspapers but also by all the television networks here in Malaysia.

Those of you interested to read, please go to "the star.com.my" newspaper dated 22nd June 2010.

I think it's better to post the article here as the last paragraph is important to victims who have sent money to CIMB.

73-year-old woman loses RM155,000 to ‘lover’
By ANDREA FILMER
andrea@thestar.com.my

GEORGE TOWN: A 73-year-old woman was swindled of RM155,000 in an Internet love scam by a Nigerian syndicate that has been busted by police.
She was the latest victim of the syndicate, which had cheated 110 other women over the last two years of about RM1.35mil.
The other victims included teachers, a lawyer and an engineer who were cheated of money from as little as RM5,000.
Penang deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah said the Nigerians had posed as handsome British men, courting their victims, who were all single Penang women, through online chats.
“They took the time to win over the women’s hearts and trust, sometimes to the extent of proposing marriage,” SAC Tun Hishan told a press conference here yesterday.
After about two months of courting, the “British men” conveyed their intention to send the women gifts in the form of laptop computers, mobile phones and cash in American currency.
“The women then received calls from a local woman impersonating a Customs officer, telling them that the parcel had been held up for Customs checks.
“They told the victims that a penalty had to be paid and provided them with bank accounts to pay the fine,” SAC Tun Hisan said.
He said the “British men” and parcels disappeared after the victims banked in the money.
He said the majority of the victims were aged between 20 and 50. Half of them are believed to be college and university students.
The syndicate was busted last Friday when police arrested 11 Nigerian men and three local women in raids on two houses in Seberang Prai and Butterworth after a month of surveillance.
Two computer hard disks, two flash drives, six laptop computers, 36 mobile phones, RM849, US$1,546 (RM5,086), 1,000 (RM4.080) and 1,930 Nigerian nairas (RM41.45) were seized in the raids.
The suspects are aged between 25 and 38, and some of the Nigerians are enrolled as students in institutions of higher education in Penang.
“From documents we recovered, we feel there are more victims out there,” SAC Tun Hisan said.
He urged anyone who had been asked to deposit money into CIMB bank accounts 0733-0022708-4, 0733-0022691-52-3 or 0733-0024037-52-5 to come forward and assist police in investigations.

just shows that the scammers can get caught if the police and victims and all the right agencies work together. What a terrific result. Lets hope the police have more success and it gives wider exposure to the problem.

I hope the scammer who pretends to be an Orthopedic Doctor Akim Brian Venturo working in Iraq, who's basically in Malaysia rents a home in Kuala Lumpur and also has gangs in Jakarta, can be arrested too... Because he signed up in many dating sites hunting more and more future victims out there...

Unfortunately my scammer Tony Walter waltertony42@yahoo.com was not with the group that were caught....he tried again today to reach me. I would love to report him to the Malaysian government because I sent my money via Western Union so there would be some trace as to who picked up the money...but not sure how to go about reporting to the Malaysian government...any suggestions?
