KUALA LUMPUR: A new investment scam has been detected by police here which resulted in over RM8.54mil in losses.

City police chief Comm Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said they have received 13 police reports so far involving the Personal Banc Berhad scheme.

"Based on our checks the scheme was offering between 20% and 30% returns monthly to investors.

"Checks revealed that the investors found out about the scheme via social media.
