Kuala Lumpur: Orang ramai diminta berwaspada dengan kegiatan sindiket penipuan yang menyamar sebagai pegawai Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (LHDNM) bagi memperdaya mangsa.

LHDNM dalam satu kenyataan berkata, orang ramai perlu lebih peka dan sentiasa menasihatkan ahli keluarga serta masyarakat sekeliling berkenaan perkara ini supaya dapat mengelakkan diri daripada menjadi mangsa.

Menurutnya, mengikut maklumat yang dikumpulkan menerusi laporan di media massa, bagi tahun tempoh 1 Januari sehingga Selasa lalu, sebanyak 18 kes sindiket penyamaran sebagai pegawai LHDNM membabitkan kerugian RM636,311.

"Taktik keji dengan menakutkan mangsa menyebabkan mereka panik dan akhirnya memaksa mengambil tindakan terburu-buru dengan menyerahkan butiran peribadi dan perbankan, malah ada yang secara sukarela membuat bayaran wang tunai kepada ahli sindiket.

"Sehubungan itu, orang ramai dinasihatkan agar berhati-hati dan jangan mudah terpedaya serta lakukanlah pengesahan dengan LHDNM terlebih dahulu terhadap setiap panggilan, e-mel mahupun mahupun surat yang meragukan dengan menghubungi talian Hasil Care Line atau talian pegawai yang boleh disemak senarainya pada portal rasmi www.hasil.gov.my atau hadir ke cawangan LHDNM berhampiran.

"Di samping itu, orang ramai juga boleh membuat semakan modus operandi sindiket penipuan ini di laman sesawang rasmi LHDNM," katanya.

SHAH ALAM - Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM) merekodkan peningkatan aduan kes ah long sebanyak 40 peratus sejak November tahun lalu disebabkan kesan pandemik Covid-19.

Setiausaha Kerja PPIM, Zharif Johor berkata, jumlah aduan harian meningkat sekali ganda berbanding sebelum ini kerana dipercayai lebih ramai terlibat dengan pinjaman ah long kerana desakan hidup.

“Boleh dikatakan sejumlah 80 peratus daripada pengadu terjebak dengan pinjaman ah long dan memerlukan bantuan PPIM untuk menyelesaikan tuntutan adalah disebabkan terkesan dengan pandemik Covid-19.

“Selain untuk perbelanjaan harian, rata-rata mereka membuat pinjaman ah long untuk modal memulakan perniagaan selepas dibuang kerja.

“Ada juga yang perniagaan yang terjejas dan terpaksa pinjam wang daripada ah long,” katanya kepada Sinar Harian pada Rabu.

Namun begitu jelas Zharif, berdasarkan aduan diterima sejak November, jumlah pinjaman yang dibuat pengadu tidak sebanyak kes-kes sebelum ini.

“Jika sebelum ini jumlah pengadu mungkin tidak seperti sekarang tetapi ia melibatkan jumlah pinjaman yang besar sehingga berjuta-juta ringgit.

“Berdasarkan rekod sejak tiga bulan ini, kes aduan meningkat menunjukkan lebih ramai terjebak dengan ah long tetapi jumlah tuntutan pinjaman yang sederhana serendah RM10,000 hingga RM200,000,” katanya.

Katanya, terdapat kes seorang suri rumah berusia 27 tahun membuat pinjaman dengan sembilan ah long setelah suaminya dibuang kerja.

Malaysiakini9 Feb 2021, 3:10 pm

Gara-gara menjual nasi bungkus berlauk kambing dengan harga tinggi, sebuah kedai makan di Kubang Kerian, Kota Bharu, dikompaun Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna (KPDNHEP) Kelantan semalam.

Pengarahnya Adnan Abd Rahman berkata tindakan itu diambil susulan peniaga tersebut tidak mempamerkan tanda harga pada makanan yang dijual dan pihaknya menerima aduan daripada pengguna.

"Satu aduan awam diterima KPDNHEP Kota Bharu berkaitan satu premis tidak meletakkan tanda harga pada makanan yang dijual di Kubang Kerian.

"Sebelum itu pengadu membuat pembelian dua nasi bungkus berlauk kambing dengan harga sebanyak RM38, namun pengadu tidak berpuas hati dengan harga setelah membuat bayaran pembelian tersebut kerana harga terlalu tinggi dan tiada tanda harga dipamerkan.

"Pengadu tampil ke pejabat dengan membuat aduan rasmi berkaitan pengaduan tersebut beserta bukti pembelian dari premis terbabit," katanya kepada media di Kota Bharu, hari ini.

Sehubungan itu Adnan berkata, sepasukan penguat Kuasa KPDNHEP Kota Bharu menyiasat aduan tersebut dan hasil siasatan dijalankan mendapati memang tiada tanda harga dipamerkan di premis berkenaan.

"Satu tindakan kes dibuat mengikut Akta Kawalan Harga dan Antipencatutan 2011 ke atas premis gagal mempamerkan tanda harga pada barangan yang dijual," katanya.

Adnan menambah sejak Jan lalu sehingga kini sebanyak 44 kes diambil tindakan mengikut Akta Kawalan Harga dan Antipencatutan 2011 oleh KPDNHEP Kelantan.

Insurance companies seeking ways to ease patients’ expenses PDF Print E-mail

KUALA LUMPUR: Insurance and takaful companies said today they are working with the health ministry and Bank Negara Malaysia to explore ways to ease some of the expenses of Covid-19 patients who are treated in private hospitals.

In a joint statement, the Life Insurance Association of Malaysia, General Insurance Association of Malaysia and Malaysian Takaful Association said pandemic-related risks are generally not covered under any insurance and takaful plans worldwide.

“The exclusion stems from the difficulty in pricing for coverage relating to an event like a pandemic that may occur once in a lifetime, having an incalculable impact and cost. Covid-19 is a pandemic; hence it is not insured or covered under medical and health insurance or takaful benefits,” they said.

However, most life insurers and takaful operators in Malaysia had provided supplementary benefits such as daily hospital income to be paid to the affected policy holders, the associations said.

They said they had put in place various relief measures to help policy holders cope with the financial impact of the pandemic.

MyCC not the right body to act against us when there's Mavcom, says MAS PDF Print E-mail

MyCC not the right body to act against us when there's Mavcom, says MASJanuary 18, 2021

PUTRAJAYA (Jan 12): Malaysia Airline System Bhd (MAS) today questioned whether the Malaysian Competition Commission (MyCC) was the rightful body to take action against MAS and AirAsia Bhd in relation to a collaboration agreement entered into in 2011 by the two airlines as well as AirAsia X Sdn Bhd.

Submitting in the Court of Appeal, MAS’ counsel Logan Sabapathy said the matter was within the purview of the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) since its formation in 2016 as a specialised body to look into the aviation industry.

The High Court had in December 2018 allowed MyCC’s judicial review application and quashed the decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT). It reinstated the March 2014 decision of MyCC, which imposed a fine of RM10 million each on MAS and AirAsia.

Noting that the aviation industry and CAT had accepted that MyCC should not have imposed the fine, Logan questioned why MyCC had proceeded to appeal against the decision made by its own appeal tribunal.

Logan said Mavcom had been set up specifically to regulate the aviation industry and should be the body to oversee the airline industry.

Late delivery payment begins from booking fee collection, says court PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 February 2021 10:49

January 19, 2021 1:45 PM
PUTRAJAYA: The calculation for late delivery payment to house buyers begins from the date the booking fee is paid, and not when the sale and purchase agreement (SPA) is signed, the Federal Court ruled today.

Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat said the Housing Development (Control & Licensing) 1966 and its subsidiary laws were social legislation and that was a settled law.

In a dispute brought before the court, the developers contended that the scheduled contracts must be read literally and in accordance with the intention of parties.

“It is our view that the submission is untenable. When it comes to interpreting social legislation, the courts must give effect to the intention of Parliament and not the intention of parties,” Tengku Maimun said.

“Otherwise, the attempt by the legislature to level the playing field by mitigating the inequality of bargaining power would be rendered nugatory and illusory,” she said in the judgment to allow seven appeals by purchasers.

The purchasers, from Melaka and Kuala Lumpur, had hauled the developers – PJD Regency Sdn Bhd, GJH Avenue Sdn Bhd and Sri Damansara Sdn Bhd – before the housing tribunal over the payment of the liquidated ascertained damages.

Exercise caution when playing ‘kootu’ funds, say lawyers PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 February 2021 10:45

February 7, 2021 10:59 AM

KUALA LUMPUR: The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted the earning capacity of many Malaysians, and this could tempt some to turn to the time-tested way of raising some hard cash through tontine, which is known locally as “kootu”.

But several lawyers have advised the people to exercise caution when participating in tontine lest they be caught on the wrong side of the law.

Some aspects of how locals operate could violate Section 3 of the Kootu Funds (Prohibition) Act 1971 (Act 28), they said.

Lawyer Teeruvarasu K Muthusamy said tontine is loosely defined as a pool of money raised from contributions made by a group of individuals at regular intervals, on a weekly or monthly basis.

The money is then withdrawn from the pool by the group leader and given to a participant, mainly by a lottery mechanism to determine the sequence of distribution among the participants.

He said while playing the traditional kootu fund among friends and family is legal according to the Registrar of Societies, it can be illegal in two situations.

“It becomes an offence when the leader charges a membership fee from the participants to join the scheme. It also becomes illegal when the leader claims profits from the contributions to enrich himself,” he told Bernama.

Teeruvarasu said the other scenario that would render the activity illegal is when the fund is advertised or promoted among the general public.

MCMC: Courier companies can be fined up to RM300,000 for violating Postal Services Act 2012 PDF Print E-mail

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission is probing J&T Express after a video which showed staff mishandling parcels went viral. — SoyaCincau picWednesday, 10 Feb 2021 08:44 AM MYT

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 — Early this week, a video of J&T Express staff mishandling parcels had gone viral due to an alleged misunderstanding of bonus arrangements by the courier company.

J&T Express had issued a statement, while the staff have also posted an apology video on Facebook.

Since the postal service falls under the jurisdiction of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the regulatory body has issued a statement on the matter without naming the courier company.

It mentioned that they are looking into the matter seriously and have told them to provide an explanation.

The MCMC said they have also issued a stern warning to the company’s management and have urged them to take necessary steps to improve the handling of customer packages.

The statement also reminded all licensed courier companies under the Postal Services Act 2012 to adhere to the conditions and rules, especially when it comes to protecting the rights of consumers.

Any license holders that have violated any subsidiary legislation under the Act can be fined up to RM300,000 or imprisoned up to 3 years, or both.

The MCMC has also urged all consumers to understand and be aware of their rights before choosing a service from a courier company.

If there are any damaged or loss items, consumers are urged to contact the service provider to report a complaint. If you’re not satisfied with the provided solution, you may proceed to lodge a formal complaint with the commission via the Aduan SKMM portal. — SoyaCincau
