Men also fall prey to love scams

November 14, 2019 | News | No Comments

KUALA LUMPUR – Not only Malaysian women but men have also fallen prey to love scams to a tune of more than RM67mil (S$21 million) this year, says Datuk Azis Jamman.

The Deputy Home Minister said out of the 1,303 love scam or parcel scam cases reported this year, 1,070 were female victims and 230 were male, with total losses of RM67,737,419.38.

“Macau scams chalked up a loss at RM94,040,451.65 from a total of 1,911 victims of which a majority, or 1,109, were female.

“Women are easy targets for these syndicates and for that reason, there is a need for more awareness on the ground.

“We realise that this issue has been going on for a long time in this country, and the ministry, especially the police, always stresses the importance to Malaysians, especially the women to understand these scams’ MO (modus operandi), ” he told reporters at a joint press conference in Parliament yesterday.

If people receive promotions or offers from unknown persons, they must check and verify first to ensure that they are not conned, Azis advised.

“With the advancement of technology, the issue of scams is not new, even in developed countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, scams are still happening.

“The ministry and the police will continue to work with the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry because women are the easiest targets, ” he added.

Its deputy minister Hannah Yeoh said based on the data, most scams mainly focused on women.

“The scams are still rampant and they will target women who are lonely. And because it involves friendships and relationships, they feel ashamed to even lodge a police report and suffer in silence for fear family members will judge them, ” said Yeoh.

The MO for a Macau scam is that the scammer would impersonate someone with authority such as a policeman or a bank officer over the phone and convince the victim that they need to pay money to avoid trouble.

For love scams or parcel scams, the scammer would strike up a friendship or relationship with the victim online and then convinces them to send money or entice the victim with a parcel delivery.

Yeoh said it was crucial for those who were being contacted by suspected scammers to not panic and to verify information first instead of immediately making transactions.

She said people should also avoid giving their contact number, bank details and IC number to strangers, especially those calling from unknown numbers.

Based on the 2019 statistics of five currently active syndicated commercial crime cases, investment scams took up the number one spot, recording the biggest loss at RM200,781,043.90.

Men were the biggest victims of investment scams, making up 577 victims out of a total of 842.

In second place are Macau scams while love scams or parcel scams came third, followed by non-existent loans which recorded a total loss of RM38,894,980.87 from a total of 4,151 victims.

Of these, 2,261 were male victims and 1,889 were female victims.

The fifth top scam is online purchase with 2,947 victims scammed of RM24,691,509.21. Of these, 1,906 were male and 1,040 were female victims.

A shocking incident happened at Bukit Gambir, Georgetown where three masked men threw a HANDMADE-BOMB into a house when they failed to snatch the bag of the house owner.

At 10am, the three men entered the house to try to rob a bag belonging to the house owner that was believed to contain valuable possessions. But, after an intense struggle with the house owner’s bodyguard, they left the house without the items. Before running away, they managed to throw a DIY bomb and a red bag containing a knife into the house.

A source told Berita Harian,

“The bomb was exploded twice by the Bomb Defusing Squad at 12.15 and 12.20 am and nothing dangerous happened.”

The police are currently investigating the matter and early investigations revealed that this attack stems from debt issues. According to the police, the suspects forced the house owner to transfer bitcoins into their account as the victim’s father owed them money.

It’s very important to maintain your health in all aspects of life – including your sex life. Doctors have said that it is essential to have a healthy sex life because if you don’t ejaculate regularly, you could increase your risk of getting prostate cancer. Recently, disease statistics from Taiwan also showed that more than 27% of men in the country suffer from erectile dysfunction, which tallies up to about 1.2 million men who have this problem.

According to Setn, doctors said that for men who do not ejaculate regularly, this can cause stones to form in the prostate and may lead to cancer if the prostate is has prolonged inflammation. A director for the Men’s Health Centre in a Taiwan hospital said that the number of Taiwanese men who are suffering from erectile dysfunction may be higher than reported as many of them are shy about these things and are reluctant to come forward to admit that they have a problem.

The director said that some people may think that this will not apply to them even as they get older, but he said that this is not true. It is also important for senior citizens to have a healthy sex life as it helps to revitalise the mind and body, as well as ensuring that the prostate’s health is maintained.

The director explained that if the frequency of ejaculation is reduced, then it is possible that the semen produced by the prostate is not discharged. The minerals in the semen are likely to accumulate and precipitate, which can cause stones. This can cause inflammation, and in the long term, may cause prostate cancer as well. He said that if the other half is unable to “help out” with this, then he encourages men to solve it themselves. You know what I mean!

These findings have also been supported by previous studies done a few years back. WebMD had reported before that having more sex or masturbating more helps to lower the risk of prostate cancer because it is likely that the more often men ejaculate, the lower the risk of contracting the disease.

In the study, the researchers discovered that guys who ejaculated at least 21 times a month had about a 20% lower chance of prostate cancer compared to men who did it less, which is about four to seven times a month over several age groups. Although results are not conclusive yet and more research needs to be done, it is always important to stay active and be safe so that you will have a healthy body!

Take care of your health, peeps!

Three men took a Grab Premium ride but evaded payment, prompting their driver to chase after them on foot for 1km.

According to Shin Min Daily News, the incident occurred outside Boon Keng MRT station on Monday (May 6), at around 2.10am.

Mr Hong, 45, shared dashcam footage on Facebook, showing three men running away from the rear of his Grab car. He said they had evaded their fare and fled.

According to Mr Hong, the trio had booked a six-seater Grab Premium ride from McDonald’s East Coast Park to Boon Keng MRT station for $53.

He told Shin Min: “Upon reaching their destination, they asked me how much the ride was while opening the car door. They then ran off without paying.”

Mr Hong immediately got down from his vehicle, locked its doors and gave chase.

He chased after them for around 1km, to a construction site in the Kallang area.

“One of the men ran till he was panting,” said Mr Hong.

“I called Grab while chasing after the men and was told that the company would reimburse the fare to me, so I stopped my pursuit.”

Facial hair for men is becoming the norm. Some choose to sport closely-cropped stubble, while others go for hipster beards or even something Dumbledore-inspired.

Love it or hate it, facial hair certainly has a polarising effect on your desirability.

Some simply adore the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Jamie Dornan, and Jack Gyllenhaal; whilst some others prefer BTS, BTS, and BTS lookalikes.

So if you are thinking of emulating K-Pop stars by shaving your stub, you might want to chuck your razor into the bin as researchers found that women are more attracted to men sporting full beards than those who are clean shaven.

In research published by the Journal of Evolutionary Biology titled “the masculinity paradox: facial masculinity and beardedness interact to determine women’s ratings of men’s facial attractiveness”, researchers asked 8,500 women to evaluate the attractiveness of men of three categories – bearded, fully bearded or sporting a goatee.

They used photographs of men as they grew their beards over a period of four weeks, from bare-faced to fully-bearded.

The women were asked to evaluate the men’s attractiveness, with a majority of them rating the clean-shaven men as the least attractive!

The researchers concluded that, “Those sporting full beards are seen as men who are mature, masculine, socially dominant and aggressive.”

They added that beards are a trait that women would consider when choosing a short- or long-term partner. 

It is hard to imagine that beards are also a factor in relationships!

Ultimately, the decision of whether a man should grow a beard or not will depend on his own relationship goals (or those preferred by his partner – or if you can even grow one).

At the very least, what this research has done is simply help men make more informed grooming choices.

In an incident that happened Friday evening, 19 April, public in Seberang Perai, Penang, thrashed two Nepali men for allegedly molesting a female Grab driver en route to their drop point

According to Seberang Perai Tengah district police chief Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid, the 27-year-old Grab driver had picked up the two men, aged 23 and 29, at Jalan Stesen about 5.30pm, New Straits Times reported today, 20 April.

The duo had booked the ride to return to their rented home in Taman Juru.

“Initially, the victim had asked both men to sit at the rear passenger seat. However, midway, the 23-year-old man climbed to the front passenger seat. The driver tried to stop him but was unsuccessful,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan was quoted as saying.

While the female Grab driver stopped by the roadside along Jalan Betik and asked the man to return to the back seat, he didn’t

When the grab car arrived along Jalan Song Ban Kheng, the man suddenly grabbed and kissed her hand before pulling her body towards him.

He then proceeded to grope her breast, ACP Nik Ros Azhan said, adding that the woman warned that she would drive them to the police station.

“When he repeated the assault again, the victim threatened to drive them to the police station. He stopped,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan said.

Along the way, the 29-year-old man who was seated at the back passenger seat vomited. At which point, the 23-year-old turned aggressive and tried to pull the woman to hug and outrage her.

“Suddenly, the younger suspect turned aggressive and started hugging the victim.

“She then immediately pulled up to the side of Jalan Bukit Minyak and asked the public to help,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan was quoted as saying.

Members of the public then got hold of the two and thrashed them

Both the suspects suffered injuries to the face due to the beating and were brought to Bukit Mertajam hospital for treatment after a police MPV unit arrived at the scene.

“The two men have been remanded for further investigation and are being probed under Section 354 of the Penal Code for outraging modesty,” the ACP added.

Cheating on your significant other is not cool. You might be able to go about your sneaky business undetected for a while, but eventually, you’ll get caught. This applies to both boys and girls, but according to this study, there is a difference between the genders when it comes to the cheating partner getting caught.

Scientists have revealed that men are less able to spot a cheating woman whereas women can tell if a man is unfaithful just by looking at his face, reported The Star.

An experiment was conducted at the University of Western Australia by researchers where a group of 1,500 people were shown pictures of 189 Caucasian adults (101 men and 88 women), who were first asked if they had been unfaithful to their partners.

The participants were then required to rank these faces on a scale of one to 10 with one being “not at all likely to be unfaithful” and 10 being “extremely likely”. 

The results published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, showed that both men and women could accurately assess men’s likelihood to cheat and poach (behavior intended to attract someone who is romantically attached), but not women’s. 

They cited research showed that 70 per cent of people from 50 different cultures admitted that they had poached someone else’s partner and 60 per cent said they were successful.

The scientists said that they did not expect these results. It was reported that men were able to detect other cheating men, but even women could not judge whether another woman was cheating or not.

“Taken together, both men and women showed above-chance accuracy for men’s faces but not women’s faces. Therefore, perceived unfaithfulness may indeed contain some kernel of truth in male faces,” the scientists wrote.

So, what makes women suspect that some men might sleep around?

According to the survey as reported by The Guardianmen with more “masculine” faces were more likely to cheat, and such men had also admitted to have cheated or “poached” other men’s partners.

However, they stressed that the results were modest, and said people should be wary of deciding whether someone is being unfaithful or not based on impressions of facial features alone.

“Surprisingly, even though more attractive men were rated as more unfaithful, they were less likely to engage in actual mate poaching,” the study said.

Despite the findings, one of the scientists involved in the report cautioned against jumping to conclusions on a first date.

What do you think of these findings? Are they accurate? Let us know in the comments below.
