A man recently posted online stating that the couple is smart enough to devise a plan to scam multiple people but not smart enough to secure their escape.
The couple who escaped to Malaysia was hiding at a hotel in Johor Bahru and eventually arrested.
Here is the story:
Regarding the recent story of the couple who scammed $32 million and ran to Malaysia, it seems like either they did not have a solid escape plan or they could not keep their mouth shut about their location.
Not very smart of them
In the news, it stated that the Singapore Police Force received information about the whereabouts of the fugitive couple from the Royal Thai Police which eventually lead to their arrest.
This could mean 2 things, either one of the couples could have told someone in Thailand about the place their staying or their mobile apps might have leaked their location. Probably LINE app, Facebook or something else.
They could have stayed off any online platforms, ditch their online accounts and gone completely offline.
Previously, the news stated that they might have escaped to Thailand but no one knew where they exactly were except themselves.
They decided to stay in Johor Bahru and check into a hotel which probably require them to use identification documents.
They were caught just 20.8km away from Woodlands Checkpoint. Why would they stay so close to Singapore?
There is this saying “The most dangerous place is the safest place”. But it seems like pure nonsense in this case.
With the vast amount of money they had, they could have travelled to a country with no extradition treaty.
This is exactly like the case of Mas Selamat, he escaped Singapore but resided near the Johor area.
