Shundra Lazhan said that after receiving the information, the victim was very interested, and the first transfer of 2580 ringgits into a bank account; one month later, the victim was instructed to click on the website www.neurobank.trade/odo.aspx and get it. I checked my personal account and password and found that I had earned 25,000 ringgits, so I was pleasantly surprised!
He said that after the victim discovered that the investment was indeed “profitable”, he increased the investment again, so he transferred 14,000 ringgits to the same account. It was not until January 23 that the victim wanted to withdraw the funds and transferred the euro to ringgit but failed.!
He pointed out that the victim had previously required RM120 to the same account as the fee for raising the relevant funds, but afterwards the victim could not successfully withdraw the funds and could not contact the website administrator.
Shunde Lalazhan stated that the victim reported to the Malin Police Station on the 11th of this month, and the police will invoke section 420 (deception) of the Criminal Code to initiate an investigation.
