A man who just stepped out of a Maybank outlet located at Muar(Malaysia) was approached by two men dressed in black. They claim that they were custom officers and said that his vehicle does not have insurance and they will need to bring him to the Police station.
The man who was worried immediately called his parents and the parents warned that it might be a scam. She then told her son to verify the identity of the men before doing anything.
When the man asked the duo for identification cards, they produce a slip of paper and flick it in his face for a second. (How to see?)
RM4000 to settle the problem
They later told the man that they can settle the problem with a small fee, only RM4,000 will be enough to settle the fee, or his vehicle will be towed away and the Police will be here. The man then took advice from his mother and told the two scammers “ok lets wait for the police and tow truck to arrive”.
RM100 also can
The man then told the scammers that he only has RM100. The two scammers then continued to threaten that they will have to “make trouble” for him if he does not pay up. They continuously mentioned that a tow truck and police will come soon.
Moments later, the scammers started to tell the man that RM500 is also enough to settle the problem. The man insists that he only has RM100, they can take it if they want to.
Finally the scammers told the man that they will accept the offer of RM100, this is when the man played smart and said now i only have RM30. The frustrated duo who could not scam the man quickly left the scene.
