General : 11,367 cybercrime cases reported from January to July this year - police

Quick Summary

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 (Bernama) — A total of 11,367 cases of cybercrime were reported from January to July this year compared to 18,510 cases of commercial crime in the same period, said Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) deputy director (cybercrimes and multimedia) Senior Assistant Commissioner Victor Sanjos.

He said after the user uploads this 'app scam', the application will ask to take over the role of the short message service (SMS) and if the user allows this then it makes it easier for scammers to carry out activities.

Victor said money in bank accounts that goes missing happens through phishing and the internet apart from the banks offering online services.
