News : Police Smash Two Online Gambling Call Centre Syndicates, 109 People Detained


Nibong Tebal, Malaysia, Sept 1, 2020 -- Police smashed two online gambling call centre syndicates with the arrest of 109 people in the northeast and Seberang Prai Selatan districts here last Saturday.

The call centre syndicate in the northeast district was masterminded by a local 61-year-old man, who was nabbed, during the raid.

The call centre syndicate in the Seberang Prai Selatan district was masterminded by a Chinese national. Police are looking for the suspect, believed to still be in the country.

In the first case, state police chief Datuk Sahabudin Abd Manan said a team of police from the state Criminal Investigation Department and the Seberang Prai Selatan district police contingent crippled an online gambling call centre and unlicensed share investment syndicate operating off a factory in a furniture manufacturing industrial area in Lorong Bakau, Sungai Baong here.

He said during the raid at the factory, which served as a call centre, police detained 99 people, aged between 19 and 52. They included 40 local men, two local women, 50 Chinese national men and seven Chinese national women.

Police also seized 97 computer sets along with their monitors, CPU, keypad, mouse and 291 handphones.

"We believe the syndicate is masterminded by a Chinese national man, and has been active for the past one month. The premises operated daily between 10am and 10pm.

"The syndicate will promote the online gambling activity in Malaysia and the unlicensed share investment in China, mainly focusing on Chinese nationals.

"Based on our investigation, the syndicate is able to rake in several hundred thousands of ringgit in profits weekly and millions monthly," he told a press conference at the Seberang Prai Selatan district police headquarters here today.

Sahabudin said the workers were paid about RM3,000 monthly, in cash.

"The locals working with the syndicate have yet to receive their first month salary," he said.

He said all 99 people detained were remanded for four days until tomorrow.

"We are currently on the hunt for the mastermind, who we believe is still in the country," he added.

In the second case in Jelutong, Sahabudin said a team of police from the Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department Organised Crime Investigation, the state Criminal Investigation Department and the northeast district police contingent raided three condominiums, which served as call centres, and detained 10 men, including the mastermind, aged between 20 and 61.

Three of the 10 men detained were Chinese nationals.

He said during the raids, police seized two sets of computers along with their monitor, CPU, keypad and mouse, six laptops, 419 handphones and tablets, three wireless modems, 12 ATM cards and four cars — Toyota Alphard, Kia, Toyota Vios and Proton Saga.

"We believe the syndicate has been active for the past one year, using the company name 'YLB'.

"The syndicate will advertise their online gambling activities through the WhatsApp and WeChat applications, focusing on locals.

"Based on our investigations, the syndicate is able to rake in between RM100,000 and RM200,000 profits monthly," he added.

Sahabudin said investigations also revealed that the bank cards used for monetary transactions were rented from several individuals at a rate of RM500 monthly.

"The workers at the premises were also paid rather handsomely, between RM2,500 and RM4,000 a month," he added.

All the 10 men detained have been remanded for four days until tomorrow.

Both cases are being investigated under Section 4(1)(a), Section 4(1)(b), Section 4(1)(c) and Section 4(1)(g) of the Common Gaming Houses Act 1953, read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code and Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act 1959/1963.

Making Training and Development Part of Your Corporate Landscape

Organizations are always on the look out to save money and make more profit. Usually when it comes to crunch time some leaders will scrap training in order to tighten the belt. The downside of this is the cycle it creates.

Because some employers see training as a flexible benefit, employee development is often taken off the table. When employees don’t feel valued it becomes easy to see a revolving door. The constant need to hire goes up which ultimately means costs go up; we know that hiring costs more than retaining the right people.
