SEREMBAN: A 40-year-old woman from Mantin near here has been scammed of almost RM117, 000 in separate non-existent loan schemes, said state commercial crimes investigation department chief Supt Aibee Ab Ghani.
The victim, who runs a motorcycle repair shop, became attracted to low interest loans purportedly being offered by two banks on social media.
“She saw the first advertisement on social media on June 7 offering an interest rate of only 1.38% and decided to apply.
“The following day, she applied for another RM100, 000 from another so-called bank which also offered a 1.38% interest rate, ” he said.
In both cases, she was told to submit her personal details online and that her applications would be approved in three days.
“For the first application, she spoke to a Jackie Ang and for the second, she liaised with one Sharon Ang.
