A TRADER from Port Dickson has filed a police report, alleging to have lost RM583,555 after she was offered an investment opportunity on WhatsApp on February 14.

Negri Sembilan Commercial CID chief Aibee Ab Ghani said the 35-year-old woman received a WhatsApp from an unknown man who offered an investment scheme through the ‘RRR68.club’ app that promised huge profits.

“Attracted by the offer, the woman made payments in 52 transactions amounting to RM583,555 into 13 bank accounts from February 15 to April 23,” he said in a statement here today.

He said the victim realised she had been cheated after finding out that the man had blocked her on WhatsApp last month.

He said the victim had lodged a police report two days ago and the case was now being investigated under section 420 of the penal code. – Bernama, June 18, 2022.
