GEORGE TOWN: A Chinese national who claimed to be a victim of a get-rich-quick scheme is collaborating with a licensed money lender to look for Alex Wong, who is believed to be the founder of money game scheme Richway Global Venture.
The man, who claimed to represent 3,000 of his countrymen, said they were in touch with a Sarawak-based money lending company via online.
“I am willing to part with half of my investment as reward if the company can trace Wong and help us recoup our investment.
“We have not received our payouts,” he told China Press.
He did not disclose how much he invested in the scheme and the total losses suffered by his compatriots.
It was earlier reported that members of Richway Global Venture, an agriculture-cum-forex investment scheme which started in May 2016, had complained that they had not been paid since last month.
They accused the scheme’s founder, who goes under the handle Vanguard of Farmers on WeChat, of swindling them of some RM1.2bil.
The man, who is currently in China, said they were now negotiating with the money lending company on payments and the services to be rendered to get back their investments.
The man said they might all come to Malaysia to lodge police reports.
He said they were willing to furnish Malaysian police with details on how they were swindled.
