Report lodged against ex-workers who refused to return 'salaries'

Published:  |  Modified:

A company in Kuantan, Pahang, has lodged a police report against two former employees who refused to return ‘salaries’ mistakenly credited into their bank accounts.

Pahang Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Supt Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof said the company’s 27-year-old human resources manager claimed that RM7,298 was credited to the accounts of the two former workers as wages for August when they had in fact already resigned in July.

“The complainant claimed to have contacted the former employees to request them to return the money but they would not cooperate,” he told reporters in Kuantan today.

In a separate case, Mohd Wazir said a general worker was cheated RM5,480 by a bogus loan syndicate since Aug 30.

The victim claimed to have been dealing with the representative of a company through a telephone number advertised on social media informing that his loan application of RM10,000 had been approved.

“However, the victim was ordered to deposit a processing fee through nine online transactions within two days starting Sept 7,” he said.

Mohd Wazir said the victim then lodged a report at the Kuantan police headquarters yesterday, as he was still being harassed to make more payments even though the amount paid had already exceeded half of the amount he wanted to borrow in the first place.
