Top 16 Scammers In Malaysia Part – 1 of 5

Beware of these scams in the market. Don’t invest blindly and lost all your hard earned money.  Anything that is too easy to make money is usually a scam.  Read the following interesting collections and be forewarned.

 

1. The Cafe Scams - Island Red Cafe & Stevens Corner

(strange, both in Pandan Indah) - Island Red Cafe collects members RM6,000 each and promised 5% return every month and even give you a name in the ROC as a shareholder but what’s the point when they run away? Stevens Corner, the famous indian coffee shop follows due to drop of business since their renovation. They collect RM3,000 per member and promise return of RM150 monthly and plans to open nice fanchisee cafe called StevensTeaGarden.. Someone mentioned they will make you sign an agreement that give them the rights NOT to pay you anything in future. If you really wish to join, ask for a copy of their agreement and consult your lawyer BEFORE paying them. Bet you will NOT get a copy. Both collect monies from new members with MLM recruitment schemes and pay the old members like Sunshine Empire. You never know when they will run away.

 

2. Sunshine Empire

This licensed and legal Company has an impressive office at the ground level of KUB building along Jalan Yap K wan Seng, near Menara Public Bank and AmBank Building . They also have a showroom office at the ground level in the next building. 3 or 4 months ago, Singapore ’s Straits Times and The Paper published big news reminding their people to be careful and NOT to believe in them. Hope someone can put up the link or
> google for it.(As expected, they STOPPED paying back members now and all investors LOST their money).
Someone below has put a link to the Singapore news. In fact there are more to it. Although Singapore is investigating them, they did not stop their business as the business is legal and so far, no Singaporean have failed to receive their commissions as promised. Thus, the government cannot stop them yet. The news published that the founder, director and group president is someone named James Phang but he is NOT the owner. Isn’t this quite strange ? At the end of the game, James Phang can just disappear from the Company easily and claimed that he was just “employed”. Such trick always happened in scam businesses. Now, the Company has STOPPED paying commissions and interests to members with the excuse that the Singapore government has freezed their bank account while under investigation. Do you think their boss will be so stupid to keep much monies in the bank to be freezed? They are all transfered away. It’s just an excuses not to
> pay back to members and members are only paid “e-bonus-points” which is cashless. If they wish to
> convert to cash, they have to recruit new members to pay them cash and the recruiter less out trom the amount. So victims act like Vampires and “forced” to victimise other victims if they wish to get their monies back. And their victims will later transform to vampires and the scam carries on……

 

3. MobilWallet

This Company owned by 2 young men, Stanley & Rey Gan, office in Queens Avenue Park has collect multi-millions the last 2 years. Claimed that they tied up with Telekoms, Utility Board payment like Water & Electricity bills, even Maybank got fooled by them. Advertisement Billboards everywhere. They STOPPED paying back their members few months ago and the members cannot do anything because they are made to sign an agreement unaware that they have to claims if the company stopped paying them by CHANGING terms and policies..

WELL THIS IS HOW I LOOK AT IT, I SPEND ON AVERAGE RM10 RINGGIT PER DAY ON FOOD SOMETIMES MORE
IF RM10 X TIMES 3O DAYS IN A MONTH = RM300. THE MEMBERSHIP IS RM60.00 + 15% DISCOUNT ON FOOD BILLS IF PAYING BY CASH, WHAT IS THE HUGE LOSS? , MOST OF THE TIME WHEN I DONT HAVE MONEY ,I CAN GO TO ANY OF THEIR BRANCHES LOCATED IN KUALA LUMPUR TO HAVE A MEAL WITH MY FREINDS , EVEN MY FAMILY, MY FOOD BILLS WILL BE NORMALLY BE DEDUCTED FROM MY E-VOUCHER ACCOUNT. SO WHAT ?
IF YOU GO OUT A RESTAURANT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK , 4 TIMES A MONTH, HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK IT WILL COST YOU?

MOST RESTAURANTS IN KL ARE VERY EXPENSIVE? DO YOU REALLY THINK RM300? IS A LOT OF MONEY?

no need to use upper caps bro.

ok, here’s the thing.. every people wanna make money, and this is ONE of the way.. and if u think that RM300 is not enough to satisfy your stomach OR RM300 is too much for eating outside, one thing will prevail, it is all our choice. if you guys think all of this are scams, why don’t we talked about the biggest scammer in Malaysia? Why we always talked about these money making businesses and why we not talked about the people behind these businesses instead?

FYI, 80% of Malaysia’s MLM businesses was started by one man and one man only.

Funny… as the saying goes, kill one and they call you a murderer, kill thousands and they call you a conquerer. Its from the old adage, that if 1 person manages to come up with a scheme to sell something (even if it means a piece of shit), and makes it big… he is known as a scammer. Thus the issue here really is, how do we differentiate if its a scam or not? People were basically sold a story and they bought it… with cash, so how can someone be called a fraudster for “selling” stories… need to ponder on this.

heard about the news recently? Red Island Cafe had stop paying its member what it promises and it is being investigated. For me, it is simple, in order for a business to make a profit and distribute to it’s business partner, there must be a product/service that is sold to the CUSTOMER. If the profit is coming from the recruiting fee of new member, it is definitely a SCAM. And if you expect to join a business and do nothing and they pay you well above what other investment vehicle is paying you, you are just too blinded by your greed rather than using your common sense.

Here’s the latest news:
Investors cry foul over KL cafe chain

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 21 — Police are investigating a restaurant franchise chain after 10 investors, including a Singaporean, lodged a report claiming one of its directors had absconded with more than RM9 million.

The investors are part of a group of more than 3,000 people, mostly Malaysians, who bought shares in the franchise known as Island Red Cafe. About 200 Singaporeans are said to have invested in the company, which claimed a monthly turnover of about RM2 million.

Each lot of shares was sold for about RM6,000.

The first Island Red Cafe opened in Kuala Lumpur in 2007. The cafe is known for its range of local and Western food and has 15 outlets throughout Malaysia.

The 10 investors lodged their police report at the Nusa Bestari police station in Johor Baru on Sunday.

The MCA Youth’s consumer affairs bureau, which promotes and enforces consumer rights, is working with the police to deal with complaints.

The Singaporean who lodged the report, Ng Ee Siong, 50, said he was lured into investing in the business by its concept.

Ng, who works in a multi-level marketing business in Singapore, said that in return for a lot of shares that he bought some time last year, he was given a voucher worth RM100 to spend at any Island Red Cafe and RM300 in cash on a monthly basis.

He said: “I could easily have made back my principal sum in two years that way and earned a profit too.”

He said he bought a second lot of shares late last year and also introduced five Singaporean friends as investors.

But Ng claimed that he stopped receiving the vouchers and cash payouts earlier this year, adding that he had not been able to contact any of the company’s four directors — including the one who is said to have absconded.

Attempts by The Straits Times to contact some of these directors yesterday were not successful. — The Straits Times

Just read the tv news the minister of “Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna”, Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob want to investigate about island red cafe. A lot people complaint about its scam and it seem this company is illegal on its business conduct and lot of legal thing haven’t registered as accordingly to government board. So becareful for those who want to invest wisely. There a branch at Bukit Tinggi, Klang and i’m wonder whether they are still operating or change to other name. One thing for sure, the way they market the business plan seem very much to scam thing. If people matter about free food just for one year investment of RM 6K, well i’m gonna said its kinda making loss investment. Just think over food can be ordered everywhere and why we have to put our own money on their food which are found to inferior compare to other.

As for the Lampe Berger, i’m think it cater for rich people. Just imagine the bottle and its refill perfume cost you around few thousand plus. They way their marketing product also quite inappropriate as they try to force you to buy their product and yet they claim it can cure lots of disease by inhaling the perfume. I can said it just a sensational aromatherapy but not an medical solution to illness and disease. Maybe it will become an addiction if we use it too much. It still skeptic about its benefits. It would rather to build up my own antibody rather dependent on supportive contraption. Who knows the thing might banned one day and we become nuts because we can’t get the thing.

Please be advised that Kelvin Haggard’s name is also being used to try and scam from gay men! He is using the email address lonelybear4u50@yahoo.com and agentjab58@yahoo.com (as the contact for getting a mail address in Ghana - West Africa under the name of Jason Bradley). I have never met the man, and in our FIRST conversation, via yahoo messenger, he claimed he was in love with me, that he was openly gay to his men (claiming to be a Staff Sergeant), and that his family had disowned him. These scammers need to be stopped!
