Cops probing share scam in Taiping


TAIPING: Taiping police are tracing the members of a syndicate who have been duping people to join 'Skim Buka Akaun Bank Beli Saham', a share investment scam.

Taiping police chief ACP Harrith Kam Abdullah said they had received seven police reports from individuals who complained of being cheated under the scam since March.

"They have lost between RM10,000 and RM70,000. They realised that they had been cheated when they did not get any returns on their investment," he said in a statement, here, yesterday.

He added that most of the victims were from the Taiping area. - BERNAMA
