No sympathy to those cheated, themselves to be blamed.

This is a sample call between the conman and victim.


I sympathized the first victim, not second and following donkeys who are still being cheated after such a bad and wide publicity in the news about Bukit Aman scam.

I did receive a call from the scam gang, they quickly dropped the call when they found out I tried to play game with them. 🙂

The incoming phone number appears on your handphone is a fake number. When you return call without re-type every single digits, your call is directed to another number.

These conmen are mostly mainland Chinese and Taiwanese. They will drop the call if you speak English.

These victims, many are highly educated are living in the closet, have never read the newspaper at all.

I have to admit these conmen or conwomen are real professionals. I did see a sales girl try to dupe a middle age lady in my kampung. I kept silence and not intervened until the lady came to ask me whether the deal was good or bad.

My reply was short and simple, “Go ahead to donate your money if you are so rich with no places to spend your money.”

The lady immediately woke-up and realized the deal was a crooked deal. The sales girl then asked her to return all free handouts after the deal was called off.

Syndicates clone caller IDs of enforcement agencies


PETALING JAYA: Syndicates are using special technology to dupe unsuspecting victims into believing they are being called by real law enforcement agencies.

The Voiceover Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology is used to replicate phone numbers of the police, Bank Negara and other government agencies.

“The victims do not know they are being duped as the caller ID is identical to the real number of the relevant authority,” Federal head of CyberSecurity and Multimedia Investigation Division Asst Comm Mohd Kamaruddin Md Din told The Star, referring to reports on the Bukit Aman scam.

VoIP is a family of technologies, communication protocols and transmission techniques for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet.

The modus operandi of the syndicate involved in the Bukit Aman scam was to tell victims that they were being investigated by Hong Kong police for money-laundering activities.

“The syndicate then tells the victims that they must transfer all their savings into an account which is provided by the syndicate in order to verify that the funds are not linked to any cases,” ACP Kamaruddin said, adding that victims were told the money would be transferred back to their accounts once Bank Negara had completed investigations.

He said there had been 76 such cases reported nationwide amounting to losses of more than RM3.05mil between January and June this year.

ACP Kamaruddin advised the public to immediately contact the relevant authorities if they received such calls.

He said there had been a total of 367 cases involving bogus police, bank and government officials between January and June this year, resulting in losses of more than RM10mil.

“Last year, there was a total of 996 cases amounting to about RM17.4mil in losses,” he said, adding that in most cases the money could not be retrieved as the syndicates operated from outside the country.
