KUALA LUMPUR: "Zero savings, zero, can’t even afford a cup of coffee,” was the lament by an elderly pensioner who lost over RM1.3 million after falling prey to an investment scam run by a company based in the city. "I was misled when I failed to research this investment company. The current status report under Section 107A of the Criminal Procedure Code on the investment scheme was handed over by Malaysian International Humanitarian Organisation secretary-general, Datuk Hishamuddin Hashim to Bukit Aman's Electronic Card Investigation Unit Head, Supt Nooranita Ismail. We received dividends for the first six months and then the company just vanished,” he said. Its director, Datuk Seri Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf verified that the department has received the application requesting a status report and investigations are ongoing.
