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.
