A group of Nigerian students, running an internet scam was busted, after police raided their house in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
During the operation, the authorities arrested four foreign men and a local woman, believed to be the syndicate’s money mule.
1.3 kilogrammes of syabu, bank account books, ATM cards and several laptops were also seized.
It’s believed that the suspects used Facebook to find potential victims.
The syndicate was detected after a college student, who lost one thousand 600 ringgit to the syndicate, lodged a report.
All those detained, aged between 28 and 32, have been remanded until August 22 to facilitate investigation.
