SINGAPORE: Singapore and Malaysian police have jointly dismantled a transnational Internet love scam syndicate based in Malaysia, said the Singapore Police Force (SPF) on Sunday (Jun 27).
The joint operation was conducted by the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) of the SPF and the Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) of the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP).

The syndicate is believed to be responsible for at least five other cases in Singapore involving S$64,000 in losses and eight other cases in Malaysia involving RM3.7 million (S$1.2 million) in losses.
