Car sales rep flees with RM90k

KUALA LUMPUR: A saleswoman who allegedly absconded with money that was meant to be used to buy a car is being investigated for cheating.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Amihizam Abdul Shukor said the police started an investigation following a report lodged by a 36-year-old man, who claimed losses of around RM90,000.

“The complainant had dealt with the suspect who works as a sales agent of a car showroom in Jalan Damansara.

“On Jan 9, he made a RM500 payment to the woman that was meant to be handed over to the car company. Between April 29 and May 4, the man made online and cash payments to a bank account provided by the suspect.

“However, on May 11, the complainant was informed via a telephone call that the management of the showroom had yet to receive his deposit.

“He was also told that the woman was no longer working for the company,” ACP Amihizam said in a statement yesterday.

He said the case would be investigated for cheating.

“Around RM70,000 in cash was given to the suspect while the remaining RM20,000 was via bank transfer,” he added.
