Dang Wangi cops crack down on call centre offering fake investments

KUALA LUMPUR: Thirty-five people were arrested after police raided a call centre operating a suspected fake investment scam.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the raid on Monday (May 10) was conducted at a condominium in Jalan Perak.

Of the 35 people arrested, six are Chinese nationals, he said in a statement.

"Preliminary questioning of the suspects showed the group had been operating since April 2021 and that they targeted investors from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

"All the workers were paid RM2,000 to RM3,000 a month.

"The scammers arrested here were tasked with finding investors over social media," he said.

All suspects, aged between 20 and 40 years old, will be remanded on Tuesday (May 11).
