Scammed

A police officer is pictured showing a fake check worth hundreds of millions of rupiah, a business license known as an SIUP and a land title certificate obtained by Banda Sakti Police after a victim lost Rp 40 million ($3039) in Lhokseumawe, Aceh, on Wednesday (03/08). Police are asking citizens to be careful of a new kind of scam where the perpetrator pretends to lose a brown envelope wrapped in plastic which contains forged checks and business licenses, which they then ask the person who finds the envelope — in this case the victim — to call the number listed on the license. The perpetrator, who pretends to be happy to have found his lost documents then asks for the finder's bank account number on the pretense that they want to send money to thank them, but instead they drain the victim's account.
