Indonesian Con Couple Hits Again

8 March 2007
Ipoh

An Indonesian couple in their 30s have been conning people since 2005 with false four-digit winning tickets.

They would approach victims with the winning tickets and asked if the victim could help claim the cash prize as they did not have identification documents. They would ask for a collateral in cash or jewellery as they needed the money to help a sick relative. The victim would realize that the ticket was false when presented at the claims counter.

Police said that 14 people have been conned by the couple and a total of RM40,760 have been given to them.
