We believed a lot of people have been the victims of phone calls scams. Recently a video of police officer answering call from a fraudster that admits himself as a customs officer on their Facebook page went viral, the post gained 3.6M views with 65.2K Likes and 34.8K Shares just within 21 hours!
The scammer pretends to admit himself as a customs officer from Customs Malaysia named Yusri bin Mohamad.
He even tried to get the female police officer identity card number to steal the personal data! She then argued with the scammer that she may have bought that much and said it was unusual. Then, the Corporal Suraya asked for his identity card number but he refused to give it.
Then, he repeated everything and threatens that Corporal Suraya’s bank accounts would be blacklisted if she did not pay the fee. The female police officer then told that she gave him her right name but the false identity card number, emphasizing that she did not purchase anything online at all. As a result, the scammer chickened out and end the call.

▼Good Job Corporal Suraya for this social awareness!
