Anti-scam campaigns to be conducted yearly, say cops

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will strengthen the anti-online commercial crime campaign even further by making it a yearly event to increase awareness of scammers' tactics.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) deputy director (Strategic Planning) Senior Asst Comm Nor Azman Muhammad Yusuf said the campaign should be continued as a crime prevention tool, in line with police enforcement efforts.

"While information on scam cases is being spread, such cases are still high due to a lack of awareness in society.

"Thus the campaign, which was started on Nov 1, will be conducted again next year," he told reporters after handing out pamphlets on various scams at the Jalan Duta toll plaza on Saturday (Nov 27).

SAC Nor Azman said some 400 bags filled with pamphlets were distributed to motorists to widen the scope of awareness among the people.

"We believe the trend of scam cases is on the decline since the campaign started.

"However, we are still conducting a study on the effectiveness of the campaign in terms of statistics of cases reported during the campaign period.

"The campaign received positive feedback from the public and we hope a continuous campaign will elevate the level of awareness of online scams," he added.
