CCID Director warns against investment schemes on social media

Comm Datuk Seri Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf says that most investment schemes advertised in social media are frauds and shouldn’t be trusted.

Director of Bukit Aman Commercial crime Investigation Department (CCID), Mr. Bukit Aman, said that regardless of the platform used to advertise the schemes, they are all scams intended to defraud people.

Don’t trust the investment schemes advertised on social media.

He told reporters that if something seems too good to true, then it probably is a scam. This was after the graduation ceremony of police sarjans trainees held at the Police Training Centre here in Pulapol on Friday (7th June).

He commented on reports that two badminton national players had been scammed.

Malaysian mixed-doubles shuttler Lai Pei Jing was reported to have suffered a major blow after losing almost all of her life savings in a scam.

Tan Boon Heong, a former doubles champion, also confirmed that he had been a victim of sexual assault in 2017.

Comm Ramli stated that police are currently investigating both cases.

We believe that both have filed reports.

They were scammed by investment schemes. “These cases were given more attention due to their status as well-known athletes,” he said.

He warned the public about investment scams that are often a get-rich-quick scheme.

There is no quick way to get rich.

He said, “Invest only in schemes that are approved by the government.”

Comm Ramli stated that the tactics used by these Investment scam syndicates includes portraying abundance wealth to entice their victims.

He said, “We hope that people remain vigilant and are wary of these tactics.”
