Con man fleeces firms of RM 270,000




KUALA LUMPUR: An account executive cheated several companies, including a prominent local bank, of some RM270,000 as he job-hopped from one company to another.

All his employers did not know that he was wanted by police for several cheating cases since 1999.

His latest employer, a property management company in Petaling Jaya, lost a total of RM89,000 in rental collection when he disappeared after working there for three months.

Company director Kamil Othman said he was shocked to learn that Rizal Ridzuan Abdul Rasap, 40, was actually a wanted man.

“My company’s accounts department hired Rizal on Nov 22 last year as an account executive.

“He was assigned to collect rental for the company,” he said at a press conference organised by the MCA Public Service and Complaints Department.

Kamil, 53, said Rizal had promptly banked in all rental collections into the company’s account during the first month.
