Information Following extensive collaboration and sharing of information between SPF and RMP, the SPF and RMP planned a joint operation to dismantle such scam syndicates. Officers from CCID raided an apartment in Johor and KL in one such raid and arrested five Malaysian men, aged between 23 and 32 years old, and five Malaysian women, aged between 21 and 28 years old, on 22 October 2021. This scam syndicate is believed to be responsible for reports targeting more than 390 victims of job scams reported in Singapore involving S$5 million. Preliminary investigations revealed that the group had targeted Singaporean and Malaysian victims and laundered their criminal proceeds in Malaysia. Simultaneously, officers from CAD and the seven Land Divisions also arrested 12 men and two women, aged between 17 and 44 years old, for their suspected involvement in these job scams. Preliminary investigations revealed that they had allegedly facilitated the syndicate’s crimes by carrying out bank transfers, funds withdrawals, or relinquishing their bank accounts to the scam syndicates for monetary gains.
