An overseas Chinese businessman in Malaysia in his 70s was defrauded of RM6.3 million.

According to China Press, the businessman met an overseas Chinese woman who claimed to be British nationality online. The woman falsely claimed that her late father had left her a fortune that she wanted to withdraw by transferring money from the merchant’s bank account abroad.

Subang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner said they met through Facebook in October last year, and then switched to the messaging app WhatsApp to keep in touch.

Sin Chew Daily reported that She told the victim that she wanted to sell the estate and transfer the money back to Malaysia, but the process of selling the property was very cumbersome, and she had to pay a lot of fees, and persuaded the businessman to give her money to help her.

China Press also reported that the businessman transferred about RM6.3 million to the woman, but only after he could not contact the woman then he realized that he had been deceived and called the police for help.

Subang Jaya police asks the public not to easily trust friends they have met recently on social media and avoid getting scams.

马来西亚一名七旬华侨商人因热心助女网友继承遗产,结果被骗走630万令吉(约203万新元)。

据《中国报》报道,这名商人是在网上认识一名自称是英国籍的华侨女子。该名女子谎称自己已故的父亲留了一笔财产给她,而她想借用商人位于国外的银行户头转账,以提取这笔财产。

梳邦再也警区主任阿末卡立助理总监说,双方是在去年10月通过Facebook认识,而两人随后转到通讯应用程序WhatsApp继续联络。

《星洲网》报道,阿末卡立表示:“她告诉事主,自己想将遗产变卖并把钱转移回马国,无奈变卖房产的过程非常繁琐,而且需要缴交很多费用,说服该商人出钱帮助她。”

中国报也报道,商人前后转了约630万令吉给女子,而在联络不上女子后才惊觉自己受骗,报警求助。

阿末卡立全请民众不要轻易相信在社交媒体结识不久的朋友,避免醉入诈骗案。
