Singer Loses Money And Mobile Phones To Bogus Cops

A KOTAI (stage show) singer clad only in his underpants chased after two robbers in a hotel in Johor Baru, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.
Raymond Chen You Hua, 53, claimed that the two men had robbed him of a total of RM6,337, and two mobile phones from his room on the second floor of the hotel.
He said the two men, believed to be in their 30s, had earlier cornered him in the room when he was just clad in his underpants.
Chen said that after identifying themselves as policemen, they ransacked his belongings before fleeing from the room with his money and mobile phones.
He said he then gave chase but lost them on the first floor.
He told reporters during a press conference called by the Johor MCA and Gerakan on Thursday that he was dissatisfied by the lack of action by the hotel in resolving the robbery.
He said he had lodged a complaint with the hotel after the incident in October because he believed that the men had entered his room with a hotel key as there was no sign of forced entry.

Submitted by Adam

JOHOR BARU: Luck ran out on a bogus cop who has been collecting money by conning the public, when police arrested him last Friday, while trying to withdraw money that was banked him by his victim.
The 31-year-old, claiming to be from Bukit Aman, had duped a number of people in Kluang and collected money in the pretext of helping them.
Johor police chief Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff, said the man was detained when withdrawing RM10,000 from a bank after initially requesting RM50,000, apparently claiming that the victim was involved in a 'black money' scam.
"The bogus cop had contacted the victim and claimed that the victim was involved in a black money syndicate in Hong Kong and to settle the matter, had requested RM50,000," he told reporters at the Johor police headquarters, here today.
Mohd Mokhtar said the victim had later banked in RM10,000 into the account of the bogus cop.
The suspect, believed to have cheated four other people, was arrested while trying to withdraw the money.
