Top 16 Scammers In Malaysia Part – 2 of 5

4. Water Business - Oxygenated and Alkaline Water Products

Some of these are bottled water and some are filters or equipment that claimed the trick..
One of the better known Company that sold “oxygen” water is SITO (supposed to stand for Selangor International Trading Organiszation and claimed Selangor State Government owned some share in it).. The key person and founder is a Dato Robert Ong from Ra wan g but his name is no longer in the business now. Their products are sold for RM2 to RM3 for a 350ml bottle and now concentrating mostly in the Indian market.. Their Chinese and Malays market are long gone since a year or 2 ago. Their customers are made to believe that their water has more oxygen and able to give miraculous effects for the body. Water is H2O, how to put more O into it ? Anyone knows how much oxygen do we breathe into our body everyday at FOC ? Latest news is that this SITO Company is going to create new label to market under a new Company since the SITO name has already gone bad. Someone informed that this Company is owing alot of money(due to refunds) to ex-stockists but just refuse to pay them. (Latest news, SITO shifted to another place and their MLM business has closed but planning to start again with a different name, beware!!)
Alkaline Products - Can anyone explain how it can work for the body ? The stomach’s gastric liquid is so acidic that water of any pH that goes through it will not make any difference.

 

5. Car Fuel Booster - K-Link

K-Link, the famous scam MLM Company that sold the footpatch TAKARA, later the “cock-ring” and energy-card launched the patrol-saving pills last year. Got so hot that even grocery shops are selling for them. Recently many of these cars that used the pills are rushing to the workshops to clean the residual. Few months ago, another MLM Company launched a fuel booster gadget, claimed that saves up to 20% fuel, that is attached to the cigarette lighter. Started off well using binary plan but businese begin to fade now and most users find it NOT effective.

 

6. Perfumery Products

(eg. Lampe Berger & Bel Air)(more details later). Lampe Berger is not so hot now in the neighbouring countries but there are still new victims every month in Malaysia . Must thanks to those who have contributed and kept the thread alive here in Kopitiam. Bel-Air have closed in Malaysia . LB is almost zero in Singapore . This perfumery product from France with over 100 years history is just bottles and fragrance (check the factory’s website) but the Company marketing them in Asia claimed “aromatheraphy” products. Hong Kong TVB aired a program that exposed their scam but their members claimed that HK’s TVB already apologised to them. Note that the biggest strenght in a MLM Scam is their members will go all way out to lie in order to defend for their Company. The reason is simple; these members fear that they will not be able to make their money back if the Company collapsed. Knowing that the Lampe Berger products are moving slow, they add a line of skincare products named Estebel, also claime to have over 100 years history in France. (Hardly anymore Chinese newcomers, they are now tapping the Malays in Malaysia .)

I just want to alert public that I have been cheated by a water vending company call which is located at

Water Boss Trading (001362567-P)
Water N Boss Marketing Sdn Bhd (670834-K)
No.30-1, Jalan Puteri 7/10,
Bandar Puteri,
47100 Puchong, Selangor.

I have invested abt 6k a year ago at their company and since then everything gone wrong. last few days I called the director Mr. Eddie Yeoh Zhee Keang (you can search the web and see the photos of him and his wife has won Excellence Service Quality in The 5th. Asia Pacific International Entrepreneur Excellence Award 2006!!!!). In requesting for my refund they kept giving me empty promises until refused to answer my calls.

the reason I wrote this is partly to ask for help and at the mean time warn others abt this scam.

chong,
i have invested about RM12k into this filter first water vending machine investment (water boss) more than a year ago. as u said there have been evading my phone calls and keep passing me from one person to another on the return in investment. i am tired of their game and planning to sue this company.
please write to me at kurt_nemo@hotmail.com if you are interested to bring up your case too. Even if i dont get my money back, i want to make sure they wrap up their business and stop cheating people. I heard there are a lot of poor people also fell for this scam.
