Possibility of luxury condo guards aiding call centre scam syndicates — police

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 24): Police are not discounting the possibility of security guards in luxury condominiums around the federal capital aiding call centre scam syndicates, following the rise of these activities at such premises.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said 20 raids were conducted recently to detect the call centres, which were mostly operating behind the facade of luxury premises.
“How can a luxury condominium allow foreign individuals to freely go in and out of their premises? Even for us (locals), it is hard,” he told reporters after attending the Kuala Lumpur police chief’s monthly assembly here on Tuesday.
Therefore, Allaudeen said police would conduct checks on guards to track their involvement with syndicates and advised luxury condominium management bodies to be vigilant of the modus operandi of call centres.
“We are preparing to work with condominium management bodies, and the District Commercial Crimes Investigation Division (CCID) has been mobilised to eradicate these syndicates once and for all,” he said, adding that Kuala Lumpur should be safeguarded from becoming the syndicates’ main hub.
He also said that the CCID conducted 1,311 raids related to online crimes between January and September.
Of that number, 71 investigations have been initiated, with the detention of 855 individuals related to call centre scams, he said.
