FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY OWNER NABBED OVER INVESTMENT SCAMS
Police have detained the owner of a film production company in connection with 23 reports lodged over foreign exchange and cryptocurrency investment scams involving losses of RM13.9 million.
According to a police source, the 35-year-old suspect who has a “Datuk” title was picked up by a team from the Inspector-General of Police Anti-Money Laundering Crime Investigation Unit at Menara 238 in Jalan Tun Razak at about 5.30pm yesterday.
It is learnt that the remand application for the suspect will be made at 10am tomorrow.
The arrest followed the latest police report which was lodged by a 47-year-old woman.
The victim claimed she was offered the chance to join an investment scheme which could return large profits to investors.
She lodged the report at the Kajang police station on Nov 2 last year after failing to receive any of the promised returns.
