KOTA BARU: “I’m always nervous and jittery, afraid of investors coming to demand back the money they invested in the get-rich-quick scheme,” lamented Mat, in his 50s, an upline member in the scheme who has also fallen victim to the scam.

Even more distressing, Mat, not his real name, said he had to fork out his own money, totalling RM38,000, to reimburse his 10 downline investors since the past few months after the investment company was shut down in April.
