SEREMBAN: Police are looking for a 42-year-old man to assist investigations into a company director's claim that he was duped of RM840,000.
State Commercial Crime Investigation Department head Supt Aibee Ab Ghani said the victim, in his 60s and from Port Dickson, claimed he was first approached in September 2019 to help finance the production of a local movie.
"The victim was told production would be carried out with cooperation from the state government," he said.
