MIRI, August 18: An elderly man here was conned of RM 9,500 after an “official” ostensibly from the Terengganu Magistrate Court convinced him that he was involved in drug and scamming cases.
During the phone call from “Terengganu” on Wednesday (Aug 15) morning, the con artist told his victim he had a personal bank loan of RM50,000 and that he needed to settle it.
After making five separate transactions totalling RM9,500 to a given bank account number, the victim suddenly realised he had been duped. He then went to the police. — DayakDaily
