October 10, 2019 | News | No Comments

JOHOR BARU – A businesswoman who was two-timing her online boyfriend with another man she met on Facebook ended up being conned of RM800,000 (S$263,193) within a month.

The single woman in her 50s had befriended the men separately via Facebook.

Sources said that within a month of getting to know them, the men began professing their love for her.

One guy promised her US$1mil (S$1.38 million).

The businesswoman then started getting calls supposedly from courier companies and dispatch riders, requesting payment for licences, taxes and immigration clearance.

The woman, believed to be lonesome, transferred money to about 12 individual accounts throughout that month.

According to sources, she started banking in amounts ranging from RM3,000 to more than RM100,000 to these accounts, thinking that she could get hold of the gifts sent by her overseas lovers.

It is learnt that the woman only realised that she had been conned after requests came in for a bigger sum of money.

Sources said that she also started getting threats when she failed to deposit the money.

She related it to her family before lodging a police report.

In another love scam, a housewife who carried out an online affair was cheated of about RM40,000 by a “London boyfriend”.

She had befriended the man on social media.

They got along well and three months later in August, the man wanted to send her some gifts.

The woman, who is in her 30s, was contacted about a parcel being sent from overseas for her was awaiting collection.

However, she was told to pay about RM2,000 for clearance.

Soon after the first payment, the woman started getting subsequent calls for other payments to release the parcel.

Sources said that the woman started transferring the money via online banking to various accounts.

After banking about RM40,000, she realised that she had been duped.

And the promised gifts also never arrived.

The woman then lodged a police report.

A police official confirmed both cases and said investigations were under way under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

Those with information about such cases are urged to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999.

It’s the bane of all drivers — a car that’s parked too close for comfort.

On Tuesday (Oct 1), a displeased driver was forced to climb out from her Mazda at a carpark in Marina Bay Sands because the Volvo next to her car was not “parked properly”.

She even left a handwritten note for the other driver: “I think you need to learn how to park properly especially when the parking lots here are extremely limited.”

“I had to get out from the other side (of my car). Thanks!”

Her note sounded polite but the woman ranted in an Instagram story: “(I) was so pissed off that I had to climb over the other side and there’s f***ing limited lots here.”

But it looks like the lady might be the one in need of some guidance herself.

Dashcam footage posted on Facebook page SG Road Vigilante revealed that she had reversed her blue sports car into the space between the black sedan and a pillar.

It was a tight squeeze but she managed to pull it off. She then exited her car and snapped several photos of the Volvo before she left a note on its windscreen and walked away.

It turns out that the spot where she parked her car was not a parking lot — it had neither floor marking nor lot number.

Now that this driver’s folly is out there for all to see, will a traffic ticket come her way soon?

While many netizens are amused by the parking blunder, a Facebook user, who also drives a Mazda two-seater, said it isn’t unreasonable for the female driver to mistake the space for a parking lot.

She wrote: “The ‘lot’ was once an actual lot. But when they widened the columns, one out of three lots was removed, they used dark grey paint to ‘remove’ the lot but the overhead indicators were never removed and it was lit up in green to indicate an empty lot.

“Because of how low the MX5 is, and the fact that they don’t come with seats with adjustable height, it can be hard to see the lines clearly, unless you’re very tall.”

Police in southern China are investigating the death of a woman who suddenly leapt from her seat and through the door of a moving bus on the weekend.

The unidentified woman was confirmed dead at hospital in Fenggang county, Guizhou province, on Sunday after alighting the bus through the rear door which should have been closed, according to county police.

An officer from the county’s traffic police bureau told the South China Morning Post that an investigation into the woman’s action and the bus driver’s responsibility was under way.

Surveillance footage posted online shows the woman in a yellow top sitting near the open back door before suddenly getting up and rushing through the door.

The door then closes and the bus stops moments later as passengers appear shocked.

The footage was shared widely online on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like platform.

Some internet users said the woman might have been dozing and awoke suddenly thinking she had missed her stop.

Others noted that the door should not have been open.

Just late last month, a woman was injured getting off a moving bus in Chongqing as the driver accidentally opened the rear door, video news app Kankanews.com reported.

The woman, in her 60s, simply stepped off as she saw the door open and thought she had arrived at her destination.

The driver said his safety belt loosened and he accidentally triggered the door button while trying to buckle up. He was held fully responsible for the passenger’s injury.

TELUK INTAN, Malaysia – Three women died when their car was rammed by a lorry at KM32 of Jalan Langkap-Kampar here.

Hilir Perak OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Marzukhi Mohd Mokhtar said the deceased included a 38-year-old woman, who was 35 weeks pregnant, a housewife, 19, and a pensioner, 62.

ACP Mohd Marzukhi, who withheld the names of the victims, said the housewife died on the spot while the other two died in the hospital, following the incident around 10.50am on Tuesday (Sept 3).

“The pensioner is the aunt of the housewife and neighbour to the pregnant woman.

“An eight-month-old baby girl who was in the car suffered light injuries.

“The 36-year-old lorry driver is unharmed,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (Sept 3).

ACP Mohd Marzukhi said both the car and lorry were headed towards Kampar from Langkap prior to the incident near the junction, where the Desa Tanjung Keramat clinic is located.

“The lorry rammed into the back of the car while making a right turn at the junction.

“The impact caused the car to spin around before crashing into a four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicle, which was heading in the opposite direction, and fell into a ditch.

“The lorry also crashed into another car that was following behind the 4WD before it too fell into a ditch on the right side of the road,” he added.

ACP Mohd Marzukhi said the 43-year-old driver of the 4WD was unharmed while his passenger, also 43, injured his nose.

He said the lorry driver has been arrested.

The case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act for reckless driving causing death.

A young Hong Kong woman has admitted throwing corrosive acid in a stranger’s face because she thought he was old, fat, short and ugly.

The High Court heard Ng Lai-fong, who is 26 and unemployed, was caught a month after the attack on April 12 last year – as she was about to pour a bottle of hydrochloric acid over the same man for a second time.

Lam asked if Ng needed anything. But instead of replying, she suddenly pulled a glass bottle from her bag, hurled its contents in his face and ran away.

Lam immediately felt pain and heat on his face and saw that his clothes were giving off fumes. He called police.

A subsequent medical examination at Caritas Hospital found that the chemical damaged both Lam’s eyes, including causing injuries to his corneas.

He was in hospital for four days.

But he did not know what had brought about the attack, as he could not recall having met Ng before the attack. He also told investigators he did not have grudges with anyone or owe any debt.

A month later, on May 6, a worker at a shop neighbouring Lam’s noticed a woman nearby with long black hair, black clothes and large circular earrings – similar to Ng’s attire on the day of the attack, as captured on security footage.

A security guard called police, who stopped Ng on the same floor and found that she was carrying a bottle of pale yellow liquid containing hydrochloric acid at a concentration of 32 per cent.

Upon arrest, Ng admitted: “Yes, that day I used corrosive acid to splash on him. I came today because I wanted to splash corrosive acid on him one more time.”

She later told investigators she remembered Lam since he had told a fortune for her after she bought a bracelet from him.

She said she had a personal grudge against him, adding that he was old, fat, short and ugly.

Judging the injuries she caused herself during the first attack to be “too minor”, she believed Lam’s injuries to be “not serious enough”, and so planned a second attack.

“The accused made it clear that her target was Lam’s head,” the prosecutor said.

A government chemist who analysed the bottle seized from Ng, containing 430ml of liquid, found that it carried highly corrosive acid capable of causing severe skin burns and permanent visual damage.

Her latest psychiatric assessment, in February, revealed she was schizophrenic.

The former waitress pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of throwing corrosive fluid with intent and another of attempting to throw corrosive fluid.

Madam Justice Esther Toh Lye-ping adjourned sentencing to September 23, pending reports on Ng’s background and psychiatric condition to see if a hospital order is necessary. Throwing corrosive fluid is punishable by life imprisonment.

The assault took place at a shop run by Lam Shing-yip, 56, at the Dragon Centre mall in Sham Shui Po.

Senior public prosecutor Gary Leung Yuk-hang said Lam had been working as usual on April 12 when Ng entered his seventh-floor shop wearing a mask and carrying a black bag.

A woman killed herself when a traditional fundraising feast that she hosted did not receive enough cash gifts, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The woman was estranged from her husband and had been living alone in Madurai city in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

It was reported that she would host a moi virundhu (a crowdfunding feast) every two years and use the income from it for her money lending business.

She had expected to collect about four million rupees (S$77,267). however, the amount only came up to just about RM70,000 (S$23,021).

Frustrated over this, the woman hanged herself in her home.

The moi virundhu is a tradition in south India. In the olden days, it was done during hard times so that the burden is shared among the folk in the village.

Those attending the feast would pay for the communal meal.

However, the concept has evolved in recent years into a money-making endeavour mainly seen during the month of Aadi in the Hindu calendar.

We’ve probably all attempted a mad dash past closing train doors at MRT stations.

In a video clip that has surfaced on Facebook on Wednesday (Aug 28), two female passengers could be seen running into a train about to depart Little India station.

One of them made it, but the doors closed before the second woman could enter.

Even with the doors slammed shut, she tried to muscle her way into the train carriage.

While the passenger succeeded in prying the platform screen doors open with her bare hands, the train doors proved to be too difficult for her to overcome.

The woman then became trapped between the two sets of doors.

Realising that she was in trouble, a train station staff member and several train passengers rushed to the doors to try and free her.

Moments later, she squeezed herself into the carriage as the train doors let up.

The incident appeared to have interfered with the door alignment, as both sets of doors opened for a second time.

A crowd then gathered near the doors to check out the commotion as the train stalled for about a minute.

After viewing the clip, Facebook users were quick to criticise the woman’s actions which could have endangered her own life and caused trouble for others.

She may have been lucky enough to have escaped unscathed, but her attempt to catch the departing train caused a delay in everyone’s journey.

Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice president of corporate communications at SBS Transit told AsiaOne that the incident took place at Downtown Line’s Little India station on Monday (Aug 26) at 3.30pm.

“The passenger used her hands to block the platform screen doors from closing fully. As a result, they started to retract as the system detected the obstruction.”

“As the commuter attempted to squeeze through the closed train doors, a staff onboard activated an emergency device which enabled the train doors to reopen fully so that the passenger could enter the train.”

The entire episode happened in a span of 20 seconds.

Ms Tan added, “For safety reasons, commuters must not attempt such actions. This is extremely dangerous and could result in serious injury. It could also result in a service disruption as well as cause damage to public property.”

Sukabumi Police have arrested a woman for allegedly hiring four hitmen to murder her husband and stepson.

The husband, Edi Candra Purnama, 54, and stepson, M. Adi Pradana, 23, were found inside a burned-out car on Jl. Cidahu-Parakansalak, West Java, on Sunday.

Residents only noticed the corpses, which reportedly had been placed inside the car after the murder, once the fire had died down.

The woman, identified as AK, was arrested in Jakarta on Monday night. Another suspect, allegedly one of the hitmen, identified as KV, was undergoing treatment at Pertamina Hospital in Jakarta, police said without elaborating.

Sukabumi Police chief Sr. Adj. Comr. Nasriadi alleged the murder had been motivated by a domestic conflict and a debt issue.

“The suspect put the corpses inside the car and set it on fire to eliminate traces,” Nasriadi said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com.

We’ve all been through the times when we had no choice but to burn the midnight oil. You either had to rush a last-minute assignment for class or you had a work project due the next day. When it’s finally over, nothing feels better than to catch up on sleep and go back to your normal sleep patterns.

However, a woman from Samut Prakan, Thailand, didn’t get to “catch up on sleep” after working late night shifts and started developing a severe rash all over her body due to an imbalanced immune system.

Toq Taeq Kerdmee shared on Facebook about how she started working night shifts and couldn’t control the time she went to sleep. On some days, she would go home really late – sometimes only at 3am. She also said that she often gets insomnia after coming home from work, which doesn’t give her much time to rest.

This unhealthy sleeping pattern went on for three months until she started noticing a rash forming on her body.

“I thought it was just a bug bite, but in the morning, it started to spread more and more. So I went to the first doctor who also told me that it was just a bug bite,” she said, adding that she was given some anti-inflammatory medication and sent home.

However, Kerdmee’s rash became worse when she went to a friend’s birthday party in the evening and had some seafood. She went home with red blisters on her body which made it hard for her to fall asleep, but she reasoned that the medicine she took hadn’t taken effect yet.

In the morning, the blisters were still there, and she started developing a fever. So she went to another doctor, who told her that she was just having an allergic reaction to the fabric softener on her clothes.

The doctor then arranged for her to see a dermatologist, but as she was waiting for her appointment, she began having a fever again and blisters started appearing on her arms and legs. However, the third doctor also said that she was having an allergic reaction and gave her an injection to reduce the inflammation.

Kerdmee went back home to rest, thinking that she would recover from this horrible rash. But that night was the most haunting night of her life.

“I was not able to wear any clothes to sleep. My body felt like it was on fire and it felt like there were a million ants biting my body,” she said.

Her family brought her to the hospital where her fever started again, this time with a temperature of 40.2 degrees. Fortunately, her body was still able to respond to treatment. Her blood was disinfected, and she was confined in a separate room.

Her fever soon went away and red patches started forming on her skin. Doctors told her that her immune system had been affected due to severe sleep deprivation.
