The businesswoman, who only wanted to be known as Su, said she fired several employees after she found out that they were using her business premises for other own business dealings.
"I only found out that they were using my premises to operate their gold trading business when I saw several forms which had no relation to my business hidden in a desk," said Su, a Sabahan who runs a beverage distributing company in the peninsula.
She claimed that she checked with the Registrar of Companies to see if the business dealings were registered only to discover that they had no such record of the so-called gold trading company.
"This prompted me to fire those involved in doing business in my premises without my knowledge," said Su, who approached the media during her business trip to Sabah, here, Monday.
"I lodged a police report at the Klang Police Station on Sept 12 for fear for my safety as well as to inform that my company is not associated with the gold trading business," she said.
She said on Sept 21, her 27-year-old daughter told her that she received an intimidating call from an unknown man through a private number.
"My daughter said the man threatened to wait for me outside my house and that they will splash acid on me, prompting me to lodge another report the same day.
"I suspect my former employees are behind the threats because this incident only started happening after I fired them," she said.
"I came to the media here because I also have a branch in Sabah and I do not want my clients to associate my company with the gold trading business or with those associated with it," said Su who was accompanied by her business partner.
