Scammed from November last year until April 2022.
A businessman who reportedly lost a total of RM21 million to an alleged Macau scam is from Port Dickson and not Penang, says Selangor Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Asst Comm Azman Ali.
ACP Azman said the victim is a millionaire and has several businesses in Bukit Kemuning Shah Alam and Kuala Lumpur.
“From the report that we received from the victim, he is from Port Dickson and not Penang as alleged,” he said briefly when contacted.
When asked for an update on the case, ACP Azman declined to comment further as the matter is still in the midst of an investigation.
It is learnt that the victim lodged the police report recently after he realised his money had been transferred to other unknown accounts.
It was reported that the victim had lost RM21 million in total after being scammed by the alleged syndicate from November last year until April 2022.
The case is being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating. – The Star
