Malaysian worked with a foreign syndicate to commit job fraud

Malaysian worked with a foreign syndicate to commit job fraudPolice said local people were found to be working with overseas syndicates in masterminding job fraud cases.

Director of the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (JSJK), Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf, said the mastermind spread sweet promises, including lucrative salaries, to trick Malaysians into working abroad, who eventually became victims of job fraud.

“Local people certainly orchestrate this case of employment fraud, but there must be a connection with a syndicate from abroad.

“The latest involves the case of Malaysians rescued in Peru and now waiting for the victims to return before their statements are recorded.

“The police will gather more information about the modus operandi of the syndicate involved,” he said, according to Harian Metro at the Closing Ceremony of the 2023 Chief of Police Cup Karate Tournament at the International Islamic University of Malaysia (UIAM) in Kuantan.

Meanwhile, Ramli said there is no term for “hypnotizing” through phone calls in the case of job fraud victims. Instead, the syndicate involved uses a psychological approach.

He said that the syndicate was also looking for victims randomly without knowing the victim’s background.

“Unfortunately, there are also cases where they know, but in the end they say they were hypnotized.”
