KUALA LUMPUR : A total of 104 Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) consisting of artists, entrepreneurs, religious leaders, police officers, influencers, artists and athletes were appointed as Anti-Scam Ambassadors of the Commercial Crime Investigation Department (JSJK) at an appointment ceremony held at the Royal Police Academy Malaysia (PDRM) today.

The ambassadors will act as spokespeople for the Anti-Scam Campaign on behalf of JSJK to spread awareness about fraud syndicates that are prevalent in the country.

A total of 76 KOLs were appointed by JSJSK while another 28 people were under the auspices of Multimedia Creative Solution Sdn Bhd (MCS) as JSJK’s strategic partner for the campaign.

All the figures were chosen because they have a large following to facilitate the effort to reach the target group.

The appointment of the JSJK Anti-Scam Ambassador was completed by the Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani in a ceremony which was also attended by JSJK Bukit Aman Director Datuk Mohd Kamaruddin Md Din and MCS Managing Director, Datuk Steven Lim Boon Siong.

“Nowadays most of the scammers we see have changed. Instead of using conventional tactics they have changed to other methods such as taking over social media accounts and then doing some things that cause us to be easily deceived by those actions.

“Some pretend to be internet service providers and the like. Sometimes they say that we have a problem with the account… that’s one thing too. If we’re not sure, we just end the call,” said Acryl in a press conference held after the ceremony here.

Meanwhile, Datuk Steven Lim also expressed his gratitude for the trust given by the PDRM to MCS in the partnership established to deal with the anti-scam problem in this country.

“I am honored for JSJK’s trust in MCS to be their strategic partner and also help propose a total of 28 KOLs to JSJK to be ambassadors of the Anti-Scam Campaign.

“Almost every day we read about fraud syndicates such as Macau Scam and Love Scam in the media, the victims are of various ages and backgrounds,” explained Lim.

Among the artists selected as JSJK Anti-Scam Ambassadors include Tomok, Wany Hasrita, Khai Bahar, Hael Husaini and Black Hanifah.
