Police stops an African scam syndicate
MALACCA: Royal Police Malaysia arrested seven Nigerians and a local female student who are suspected running scam activities in an apartment located in Bachang.
According to police, this syndicate is using romantic declarations of love and pictures of good-looking Caucasian men to woo lonely women over the Internet before getting them to part with their saving. After the victim was snared, the suspects would convince the person to deposit money into the bank account of their local female associate.
The police now are trying to track all the emails that had been sent through the syndicate’s laptops to identify the victims.
