KUANTAN: A female teacher claimed to have lost RM120,000 in a Macau syndicate scam which duped her into believing she was involved in an investigation over drugs and money laundering.

Pahang Commercial Crime Investigations Department Supt Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof said the 50-year-old victim had received a phone call from a man who claimed to be a representative from the Kuala Terengganu District Court, at 9.30am on Thursday.

The suspect allegedly said the victim had an outstanding credit card debt of RM13,600.10 before “transferring” the call to the police.

“The complainant claimed to have panicked when informed that she was involved in drugs and money laundering activities, and that the money in her account would be frozen until the end of the investigation. – Bernama
