Consumer advocate: Has your insurance claim been approved?Monday, 29 Mar 2021
KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here has recorded a consent judgment between a 42-year-old cancer patient and an insurance company in a RM2.5mil lawsuit she filed against the latter.

In the judgment recorded before Judicial Commissioner Liza Chan Sow Keng here on Monday (March 29), businesswoman Tan Siew Wei and Great Eastern Life Assurance (Malaysia) Bhd achieved a full and final settlement in one of the two insurance policies she is claiming for.

In the settlement, a sum of RM500,000 was to be paid by the defendant to Tan as a full and final settlement of all the claims and demands which Tan has against the defendant, in respect to the particular policy.

Tan, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cervical cancer in 2019, had sued the company for rejecting her critical illness insurance claims on allegations that she had broken the policy clause with a non-disclosure on her mental state, where she was diagnosed with an anxiety attack in February, 2017.

She is suing the company to claim for RM500,000, which is the basic sum assured from the first life insurance policy, and another RM2mil, the basic sum assured from her second life insurance policy.

The court ordered for the settlement sum to be paid before April 1 and did not make any order as to costs.

Neither party would have any further claim against the other after the settlement is completed. The policy shall be terminated with all the benefits and rights provided under the policy to cease.

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

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.

Kuala Lumpur: Orang ramai dinasihatkan supaya berhati-hati ketika melakukan proses pajak gadai bagi mengelak menjadi mangsa penipuan.

Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial (JSJK) Bukit Aman Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob berkata, pelaksanaan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) sejak 18 Mac 2020 memberikan impak dari segi ekonomi dan pendapatan.

"Sebahagian daripada mereka terpaksa menggadaikan barangan berharga di (kedai) pajak gadai demi kelangsungan hidup.

"Dari sudut pandang pihak polis, situasi ini memungkinkan wujudnya aktiviti pajak gadai tidak berlesen atau penipuan pajak gadai yang mengambil kesempatan ke atas mangsa yang terdesak mendapatkan wang," katanya dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Zainuddin berkata, walaupun belum ada sebarang laporan diterima berhubung perkara berkenaan setakat ini, namun keberangkalian untuk kes seumpama itu berlaku adalah tidak mustahil.

"Orang ramai perlu memastikan mereka berurusan dengan syarikat pajak gadai yang dilesenkan kerajaan dan mengambil tahu mengenai prosedur serta undang-undang berkaitan.

"Jangan sesekali berurusan melalui platform dalam talian kerana aktiviti pajak gadai perlu dijalankan secara fizikal di premis perniagaan yang didaftarkan.
