Watch Out! New Scam Alert: How One Company Dodged a Bullet



Last week, something fishy landed on the doorstep of a company we work with. They got a letter from the Tribunal Tuntutan Pengguna Malaysia (TTPM), saying they scammed someone! But here's the kicker – this company deals in investments, not scams. What in the world is going on here?

 

Let's give the accuser a name – how about "Long" (not their real name, of course). Long claimed they fell for an "online job scam" and lost almost RM100,000.00. But get this – they sent the money to random people, not the company!

 

The company smelled something fishy and decided to call in the big guns – lawyers (which was us in this case). And you know what? Those legal eagles had a lightbulb moment: "What if Long is the real scammer. As the investigation deepened, connections began to surface. Both Long's and the supposed recipients' bank accounts had a history of fraudulent activity, as reported by the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM). It was a pivotal moment of realization - the company was not the perpetrator but the intended victim of a well-orchestrated scheme.

 

With this new info in hand, the company decided to play a little game of cat and mouse. They sent a bold "We're innocent, and here's why" affidavit to the tribunal. And guess what? Long panicked and backed down, withdrawing their claim faster than you can say "scam."

 

Talk about a close shave, huh? If the company hadn't acted fast, they could've been out RM50,000.00! But this story isn't just about luck – it's a lesson for us all. Don't go handing over your hard-earned cash without doing your homework and background check first. Scammers are lurking around every corner, ready to pounce. So stay sharp, stay savvy, and keep those scam detectors on high alert!
