"Modern" trend of thief

Salam dan bismillah...

I've got this info from an email forwarded to me..This is the real story about "modern" trend of thief nowadays. Anybody can be their victim. 


I am sure you all have heard of 'pick pocket'.  A new trend 'push pocket'. Read on.. for your own good

A few days ago a new type of crime has surfaced in town.  It goes something like this:-
Somebody slips a hand-phone into your pocket, sometimes it could be just a wallet with
an identity card and a few ringgit.

A few minutes later, the 'owner' comes up and confronts you, the 'thief '. He makes a big commotion that you stole his stuff.

You, caught unaware, are then pulled aside by the 'owner' for a settlement. You are intimidated and threatenedthat if you do not pay up the police will be brought in.  If you pay up, this 'owner' lets you go. If not, the police are brought in.

Another strange thing is that there always seems to be a 'witness' to your 'theft'.

I am told this often happens to foreigners at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)
or even at LRT trains. Given that you're 'guilty until proven innocent' . As far as the Malaysian police are concerned, I understand some poor people are in jail for these 'offences'.

At the KLIA, the 'owner' throws his hand-phone and wallet with the few ringgit notes into the luggage trolley of a just arrived passenger. The drama unfolds a few minutes later. The real culprit has easily convinced our Malaysian police to arrest the real victim (if he has not paid up the 'settlement' demand).
This is a very serious matter.

This is another form of extortionists operating in broad daylight. They are disgusting criminals who will do anything to rob and steal. The sickening part of the whole scenario is that unless you pay the 'quoted settlement' money, they will put you in real trouble by calling the police.

The real culprit gets back his hand-phone and wallet but the real victim ( i.e. could be any one of us) is thrown into the police lock up and charged in court.

So do be very careful, otherwise you may end up as a 'thief' as you have no way to prove your innocence.

Terukkan kalau ada antara kita yg jadi victim orang jahat macam ni, minta simpang la..Just be careful anyway ya kawan2...
