Man charged over impersonation scam

AN UNEMPLOYED man was charged on Friday with conspiring with a woman to cheat a man. No plea was taken from Masjadi Ahmad Marsuk, 55, who was remanded for a week for further investigation. The charge says that the woman deceived Mr Kwek Chye Hock, 35, into believing that she was from the Credit Bureau and would be able to help him get $450 as part of the government workforce scheme if he followed her instruction to key in certain personal identification numbers at a POSBank ATM which turned out to be a transfer transaction. By so doing, she allegedly induced Mr Kwek to transfer a total of $2,124 to Masjadi's bank account. If convicted, Masjadi can be jailed for up to 10 years and fined. Since July 6, police have received at least eight reports where victims were cheated between $2,000 and $4,000 each in cash. The woman is expected to be charged on Saturday.
