Old Lady Shocked To Death By Phone Kidnapping Scam
Mar 11, 2011 11:16
The 66-year-old heart patient reportedly collapsed and died at her home after receiving a hoax telephone call demanding RM50,000 ransom to free her "abducted granddaughter". When she contacted her 30-year-old daughter to talk with the
abductors, she collapsed while still holding onto the
telephone receiver. She was later found dead at her residence.
The incident was revealed by Bukit Katil MCA chairman Datuk Koh Nai Kwong, who said the victim's daughter later discovered it was a scam when she called the school and was told that her 11-year-old daughter was fine and still in her classroom.
According to the chairman, the scam is believed to be run by a syndicate led by Chinese nationals, and they have been making such calls for the past few months:
"They will feign the cries of young children when making calls to victims and demand for ransom money to be placed in secluded places," he said.
"This is not something new. We have dealt with such scams. They have been scaring people.
"We are perplexed as to how they obtained the telephone numbers. From their accent, we clearly know they are foreigners," he said.
