Stuck at home? Watch out for these scams23 Mac 2021
KUANTAN- Tindakan seorang pemuda yang mengemas kini akaun bank miliknya menerusi pautan yang diterima melalui sistem pesanan ringkas (SMS) menjerat diri apabila wang simpanannya berjumlah RM15,000 lesap.

Kejadian berlaku pada Selasa lalu, apabila mangsa berusia 22 tahun menerima satu SMS memintanya mengemas kini dan mengesahkan akaun bank miliknya.

Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial Pahang, Superintendan Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof berkata, pada mulanya mangsa tidak mengendahkan, namun selepas menerima SMS sama pada keesokan hari menyebabkan mangsa bertindak mengakses pautan yang diberikan itu.

"Mangsa menekan pautan itu kerana yakin itu adalah SMS dari pihak bank dan terus mendaftar masuk ke laman web sebuah bank bagi mengemas kini dan mengaktifkan akaunnya.

"Setelah itu, mangsa terus mendaftar keluar tanpa membuat sebarang semakan semula ke atas akaun miliknya," katanya dalam satu kenyataan pada Selasa.

Beliau berkata, bagaimanapun pada Sabtu lalu, mangsa terkejut apabila mendapati terdapat tiga transaksi pemindahan wang dilakukan kepada individu tidak dikenali sebanyak RM15,000.

Jelasnya, mangsa kemudian menghubungi pihak bank dan menceritakan masalah yang berlaku dan sekatan akaun telah dibuat.

Scam alert, sextorian emails20 MAR 2021 / 16:52 H.

KEPALA BATAS: A purchasing officer lost RM64,207 in a parcel scam after allegedly receiving a gift package from a man she befriended on Instagram recently.

Seberang Perai Utara District Police chief ACP Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the woman, 35, who works in a logistics company, claimed that she got to know a person believed to be a man through Instagram before they exchanged telephone numbers to continue communicating via the WhatsApp application.

“After several months, the man informed the victim that he had sent her a package as a gift. The woman later received an email believed to be from an overseas courier company asking her to confirm her name, address and telephone number,” he said.

He said the woman then received a phone call from a cargo agent informing her that there was a package for her and that she would have to pay for the process of acquiring the package. She then made five transactions amounting to RM64,207 to several account numbers given by the suspect.

He said the victim only realised she had been duped after failing to contact the man or the agent from the cargo company before lodging a police report yesterday. - Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: A cosmetic product to treat pimples and acne scars, FS Turmeric Cream has been found to contain schedule poisons, mercury and betamethasone 17-valerate, which are harmful to health.

Health director-general, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah in a statement today announced the notification of the cosmetic product has been cancelled by the Pharmaceutical Services director of the Health Ministry (MOH) and is not allowed to be sold in the country.

"Mercury is prohibited in cosmetic products because it is harmful to health. When absorbed into the body, mercury can cause damage to the kidney and nervous system.

"The substance can also affect the development of the brain in infants as well as causing rashes, irritation and changes to the skin. In this regard, the people are advised not to use the cosmetic product," he said.
He said the cream also contained betamethasone 17-valerate which is a medicine registered with the drug control authority and only could be used on the advice of a health professional.

The substance can cause side effects such thinning of the skin, irritation, or risk being absorbed into the blood stream.

In this regard, he said retailers and distributors of the cosmetic product have to remove the item from their shelves immediately.

Noor Hisham said selling and distributing the product would be violating the Control of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations 1984.

7 ways to avoid falling victim to fraud | Toronto.com17 Mar 2021
IPOH: A customer service representative is at her wits' end after her e-commerce account was apparently hacked and her credit card used to buy more than RM18,000 worth of items.

Low Syuk Yee, 38, said she never received any one-time passwords from the issuing bank for the 25 transactions made within four hours on Aug 13 last year.

She subsequently lodged a police report as well as reports with the bank and online shopping platform.

She said the transactions amounting to RM18,437.40 were for the purchase of mobile and social media chat top-ups.

“The police said they would not be able to open an investigation into the matter, the online platform does not want to reveal details to me, and the bank said that I have to settle the monthly payment," she told a press conference organised by Perak MCA Public Service and Complaints Bureau chief Low Guo Nan on Tuesday (March 16).

She said she was at least able to stop the charges from being racked up further after getting a message from the bank about a transaction for RM812.40 on the night of Aug 13.

Syuk Yee said when she got the message from the bank, she immediately asked the bank to block her card.

“I also called the online platform, and the representative told me to change my password and make a police report.

“My transaction history on the site shows that I always only buy clothes and children’s items, and never spend more than RM500 per month.

"Selepas membuat bayaran mangsa diminta menunggu anaknya di sebuah pasar raya di Cheng untuk dibebaskan. Namun selepas menunggu hampir dua jam anak mangsa masih tidak kelihatan.

"Berasa dirinya ditipu mangsa bertindak menghubungi anaknya dan bertanya perkara berkenaan. Bagaimanapun mangsa terkejut diberitahu anaknya tidak ditahan sebaliknya sedang bermesyuarat," katanya.
