In the month of May, the police received several reports from victims who said they had been cheated by an online seller on Carousell.

The seller claimed to be ‘running a Hari Raya Puasa celebration promotion’, selling gold jewellery at discounted prices.

After the victims made payments via bank transfer, the seller became uncontactable.

Two teenagers, a man and a woman both aged 19, have been arrested.

Made false police report to ‘cover tracks’

Further investigations also found that the two had lodged a false police report, claiming that the woman had misplaced her personal belongings together with her bank access credentials. 

Police investigations are ongoing.
