KEPALA BATAS: A beautician ended up poorer by RM100,000 after she was cheated by a man who promised to get her a licence to run a money-changing business.

Police are looking for the 51-year-old man after the woman lodged a police report recently.

North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the man had told the 27-year-old woman that her application to get a licence for the business could be fast tracked if she paid the money as “processing fee”.

“But after handing over the amount through several cheques in 2017, the licence was not forthcoming. Instead, she was told to make additional payments, which she refused, before the man went missing, ” he said.
