Police are closing in on a woman believed to have cheated 23 people involving a tour package to South Korea, with losses estimated at over RM150,000.

Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che said that among the victims were several celebrities and television producers.

The victims had paid the woman via her bank account before the departure date, but once the group arrived in Seoul, they realised that the suspect had never made the hotel reservations, he told Bernama here today.

Mohd Zani said the case was being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code.
