KUALA LUMPUR: A woman carrying a bogus “Datuk Seri” title has raked in huge profits by conning gullible individuals who wanted to apply for loans to expand their businesses.

The 36-year old suspect, via her company, Lourdes Ventures Consultancy, has cheated her clients by persuading them to pay a substantial amount of “processing fee” in order to secure a full loan.

After paying the fee, the suspect then allegedly ignores her victims.

City Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Assistant Commissioner Izany Abdul Ghani said following a police report lodged by one of the victims last Friday, police have immediately arrested the suspect.

The police also arrested her accomplice, a 34-year old man who is said to be the director of the company, yesterday.

“The victim had paid an upfront fee of RM85,000 to the main suspect to expand his printing business. He applied for a RM2 million loan from the suspect.

“However, after waiting for four months, the suspect only gave him RM40,000 which was less than the amount of upfront fee that he had given to the suspect. Feeling cheated, he lodged a report,” said Izany.

Izany said the conniving woman had cheated her victims by convincing them that she has had high-profile clients in the past.

Preliminary investigation showed that the suspect has on record, two fraud cases, which were reported at the Brickfields and Sepang police headquarters.

Police believe that there are more victims out there who have not lodged a police report against the suspect.

Izany urged these victims to come forward immediately and lodge a report to assist the police with the investigation.
