Duo jailed, fined for involvement in online fraud ring
Radmar was arrested by the team from the Commercial Crime Investigation Division of the Sandakan District Police Headquarters on Nov 11 at 1.30pm.
SANDAKAN: Two men were jailed two months and fined RM3,000 each for being involved in an online fraud syndicate.

Magistrate Mohammad Azeem Mohd Ridzo, handed down the sentence to Radmar Jul, 24, and Jumardin Mahmud, 23, who admitted separately to committing the offence under Section 120B (2) of the Penal Code, in which they were involved in distributing, buying and renting ATM cards.

The court heard that they withdrew  RM2,100 from the account belonging to a woman by using another woman’s ATM card which was rented to them in July this year, here.

The money was supposed to be sent to Indonesia but was blocked after a report was made by the victim.

Radmar was arrested by the team from the Commercial Crime Investigation Division of the Sandakan District Police Headquarters on Nov 11 at 1.30pm.

During the arrest, police also recovered two mobile phones, three ATM cards and 300 pieces of RM50 notes totaling RM15,000.

While Jumardin was arrested on Nov 12 this year at about 11.40am.

Radmar and Jumardin, who were not represented, asked for leniency saying that they have families to look after.

But, Deputy Public Prosecutor Lim Sze Chuen urged the court to impose an appropriate punishment because fraud cases (scammers) were rampant nowadays.

Meanwhile, Radmar was also fined a total of RM400 for three counts of failing to give reasonable explanation how he obtained the four ATM cards which did not belong to him.

On the first to third count, he was fined RM100 or spend five days in jail while the fourth count, he was fined RM100 in default two days’ jail.
