Bukit Aman to intensify awareness campaign on scams


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

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

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

“Thus, the campaign, which 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 yesterday.

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

“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 increase the level of awareness of online scams,” he said.
