Six nabbed for cheating company of RM1.28mil over non-delivery of disposable gloves


PETALING JAYA: Four women and two men have been arrested after they cheated a company of disposable gloves worth RM1.28mil.

The company had ordered the nitrile gloves, packed in 39,000 boxes, on Sept 8.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the company's 28-year-old director viewed the stock and met with the supplier, a local woman, for verification.

He said the gloves were then marked with the name of the company and the following day, the director made two transactions to the woman's bank account.

"The woman told him that she would deliver the stock but she never did, She gave the excuse that the gloves had been sold to another company.

"On Sept 13, the woman promised, through a letter of agreement, to return all the money before Oct 13 and sent the director pictures of a fake transaction," he said on Wednesday (Oct 28).

ACP Nik Ezanee said on Oct 13, the woman handed over a counterfeit cheque to the director in a bid to convince him that payment had been made.

He said police and the director went to an office on Jalan Tun Razak at around 10.30pm on Tuesday (Oct 27).

"After a few minutes of observation, police arrested four women and two men, aged between 20 and 45.

"One of the women, in her 30s, was wanted in connection with four other cheating cases," he said adding that all the suspects have been remanded to assist further investigations.
