Help! There is orang minyak behind my house

A FAMILY is traumatised after several sightings of orang minyak forced them to temporarily move out from their house at Kampung Laksamana in Gombak.

Kamal Bahari Satar, 36, told Sinar Harian that the decision was made after the family was disturbed for five days.

“My sister-in-law repeatedly saw the apparition inside and outside our house,” he said on Tuesday.

Orang minyak, or translated as oily man in Malay, is a supernatural rapist who uses black grease as a night-time camouflage.

Kamal Bahari said only female family members could see the orang minyak.

The apparition had locked family members inside the house late Saturday night.

“We saw a black heap underneath the kitchen table.

“When other residents poked it with a bamboo stick, we could see blood stains,” he said.

According to Kamal Bahari, police also found black footprints outside the house where the alleged incident took place.

He added that his sister-in-law was later treated with alternative therapies after she heard whispers asking her to step outside the house.

“Thankfully, she has recovered but we do not want to take any chances as I have a 22-year-old younger sister,” said Kamal Bahari.

Watch me masturbate and I'll pay you a monthly salary of RM6,000 plus a car

A 21-YEAR-OLD woman was surprised when someone offered her a RM6,000 job as a personal assistant. A car and all-expenses paid shopping trips were also thrown in.

But what was more shocking was an unusual request by her boss he wanted her to watch him masturbate.

Harian Metro reported that the woman, known only as Rubi, said she was approached by a man while she was about to pay for her parking in Kajang, Selangor, last month.

“The man, who was in his mid-40s, introduced himself as Riduan. He claimed that he owns a company which supplies foreign workers,” Rubi said.

Initially, Riduan offered her a job as a clerk with a salary of RM1,200.

“When I showed interest, he upped the salary to RM6,000 to be his personal assistant. I was told to accompany him for shopping and to sometimes talk to him on the phone. However, he started to act strangely and asked me to watch him masturbate,” she said.

Don't ever jilt a woman or you will turn to ashes

MAKKAL Osai reported that a 28-year-old woman, who was ditched by her lover, had murdered him and burnt his body with the help of her brother and cousin.

Police said the woman, known as Seema, had been in a serious relationship with Mehboob, a married man with four children, over the past two years.

He had allegedly promised to leave his wife for her but went back on his word.

It was reported that Mehboob had tried to stab her a few days earlier.

Police said Mehboob was tricked into a final meeting, where Seema, her younger brother and cousin were waiting.
While he was talking to Seema, he was hit on the head by her younger brother and knocked unconscious.

He was later strangled and burnt and his body was dumped in the nearby forest.

I give you RM50, you give me sex

EVEN after divorcing her husband, a single mother of two is still being abused by him, Harian Metro reported.

“We were fine at first, but once our marriage became known to his first wife, he started psychologically torturing me,” Elina, 39, said.

Unable to tolerate the abuse, Elina moved house and asked for a divorce.

However, the man asked for sexual favours in return for RM50 each time.

He even sent Elina’s two sons, aged one and four, out during these “sessions”.

She also claimed to be under the spell of black magic, as she was unable to deny her ex-husband.

“I am even more convinced of this as I have found various types of oil and talisman in his possession,” she said.

Elina lodged a report with the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association recently regarding the matter.

Hey drivers, not only you have to watch out for car jackers, mat rempits or crash and rob robbers.... now beware of con-mechanis

Motorists will have to look out for “mechanics on wheels”, seen as another threat on the road these days.

These so-called mechanics prey on lone drivers, claiming there is something wrong with their car and offering on-the-spot repairs at exorbitant prices.

“One of their most common tactics is to throw diesel on the wheel of your car, causing it to emit smoke due to the heat and friction,” said City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah.

They would then try to get the attention of the car driver and volunteer to fix the vehicle, he said yesterday.

Once they manage to dupe someone to alight from the car, SAC Ku said the “mechanic” would lead the victim to a deserted area where he would pretend to check the vehicle.The victim would be told that his car parts had malfunctioned. The “mechanic” would offer to replace them for him.

However, the motorist would likely end up with the same part which had been repainted and sold back to him at inflated prices.

Police, who have received several reports about the scam have cautioned motorists to remain in their vehicles and not to be fooled by the “mechanics”.

“They may seem like good Samaritans trying to helping you, but the best thing to do is to ignore them and go to a trusted mechanic,” SAC Ku said.

Journalist T.T. Kitt, 24, said he almost fell victim to the scam while driving along the Federal Highway at 1pm on Thursday (see sidebar).

Another motorist, who declined to be named, said he had a similar experience driving in Jalan Universiti a few months ago.

These motorcyclists, he said, wore T-shirts with the logo of a petrol station and claimed to be their staff.

They took him to an isolated place and tried to sell him car parts for about RM1,000. These were actually parts from his own car which the culprits had repainted in gold.

“I told them I could not pay and they got angry,” he said. “I had to call some friends over before they left.”

However, he lost RM200 to the conmen whom he had paid earlier as a deposit for the car parts - The Star

There are brothels in Malaysia and they are frequented by schoolboys

Schoolboys make up about 3% of those frequenting brothels in the Klang Valley, according to Kita Selangor.

Kita Selangor chief Azmi Othman said what was even more shocking was that the brothels were located less than 500m from police stations.

“Gaming outlets are also located near the brothels. Don't tell me the police are not aware of what is going on. Furthermore, the brothels have been directly offering sex services, without having to use massage parlours or karaokes as fronts,” the political party leader said.

Although police had raided many of the brothels and gaming outlets, businesses ran as usual after the raids, Azmi added.

He said his committee initiated the survey after a 16-year-old boy from Banting confessed in a Malay tabloid in April that he had been frequenting a brothel in Kuala Lumpur since last year.

“We have so far monitored brothels in four locations, and found that between 10% and 15% of the thousands of customers are barely 21, and between 3% and 5% are under 18,” he said.

Azmi said the underage group was legally barred from smoking, drinking and entering entertainment outlets.

“But here we have schoolboys entering brothels easily and paying hookers for sex,” he said.

Azmi is offering the media a guided tour to the brothels in Klang Valley to record the activities of the underage boys.

“We have no choice but to turn to the media and the rakyat, as we have lost hope in political parties, the local councils and the police.

“Only the rakyat can put pressure on the authorities to act, but the rakyat need to see the evidence through the media,” he said.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said they had conducted raids many times.

“We have booked the suspected hookers many times. But they roam free on bail when they plead not guilty in court and opt for trial,” he said.

Stressing that all the relevant authorities must make a concerted effort to effectively check vice activities, ACP Wan Abdul Bari said such businesses thrive because of their customers - The Star

What do you call male sex workers?

A GROUP of male sex workers have been scouring for clients in Penang using various social networks, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The men placed advertisements on the Internet, stating they were looking for “friends”.

Some of the men even posted their contact numbers and sexy poses of themselves with price tags attached in photographs, the daily reported.

The male sex workers were from China, India, Thailand, Monaco, Australia and New Zealand, it said, adding that they would stay in hotels as guests to avoid being caught in a raid.

They reportedly charged between RM150 and RM250 per session while those from Western countries charged an extra RM100.

However, an investigative reporter found out that these sex workers were willing to mark down the price when he claimed he couldn't afford their rates.

Customers were also told to pay for transport fees if the prostitutes were to provide their “services” outside the hotels where they are based.

You better donate to Barisan Nasional or else ...... you are scammed

A new telephone scam demands victims to give “donations” allegedly for Barisan Nasional’s election fund.

The “Bukit Aman police scam” began three weeks ago with victims receiving phone calls from a number registered under the Bukit Aman Police Headquarters.

A “Datuk Halim” from the Commercial Crime desk would inform victims of a money laundering charge against them and ask them to deposit money in an account for the election fund.

Three near-victims approached Chong, who said there had been at least eight similar cases this year.

“They claimed to be acting on the Prime Minister’s orders and asked between RM3,000 and RM5,000 from each victim,” Chong said.

Telephone scam losses amounted to more than RM1.5mil this year, while Internet fraud losses stand at RM1.8mil.

She gave RM1 million to an online lover she had not met

An insurance broker received a rude shock when she lost more than RM1mil in an Internet scam.

The woman, identified only as Lim, 47, gave RM1,021,000 in total to Kevin Axcel Brown @ Joe, whom she “met” in an online matchmaking site in September.

Joe claimed he was a 48-year-old Canadian chemical engineer with Petronas in Tereng­ganu and had used different telephone numbers to communicate.

MCA’s Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong said most cases of Internet fraud involved promises of joint business ventures and marriage.

“There have been 13 cases of Internet fraud this year and nine of the victims were female.

“None of them had seen their scammers’ faces and yet could fall in love with them,” Chong added.

Joe had asked Lim for a RM1mil loan last October to settle his financial troubles and she deposited it into three different bank accounts registered under the name of Zanariah.

He then said he was abroad, but asked her to meet him at KLIA on Dec 7.

She waited for four hours in vain.

She had also transferred an extra US$7,000 (RM21,000) for Joe’s travel expenses.

Besides her savings, Lim had also borrowed from friends, family and financial organisations to raise the RM1mil.

Don't wear T-shirt or else we will fine you.......

A COFFEESHOP operator in Kota Baru, Kelantan, was fined RM250 after one of her Muslim workers wore a short-sleeve T-shirt to work.

All the major dailies Sin Chew Daily, China Press and Nanyang Siang Pau reported that an enforcement officer said to be from the Kota Baru Municipal Council issued the summons during a raid on Monday.

The officer claimed the female worker had exposed her arms and failed to conform to the dress code.

When you grow up like us don't become robbers, become doctors, say robbers to victims

MALACCA: Five masked machete-wielding robbers left not only with RM150,000 in cash and valuables, but also some words of advice for their victims.

"Don't become robbers like us. Study hard, become doctors and lawyers and make your parents proud," they told six primary schoolchildren present during the robbery.

The robbers had entered the house in Taman Batang Melaka at about 9pm and held up tuition teacher M. Sashi, 35, who was giving lessons to six primary schoolchildren aged between eight and 11.

They tied him, his wife and elderly mother before forcing the children to lie face down and remain silent.

One of the pupils' uncle, who came to fetch his 10 year-old nephew, was also held and tied up.

Sashi said the robbers had also asked his mother for forgiveness.

"Don't think too harshly of us. We too are like your son trying to make a living. Forgive us," he said.

Jasin CID chief Asst Supt Ahzarha Abdul Rahim said the robbers, believed to be in their 20's, stole an estimated RM150,000 worth of jewellery, an LCD television set and RM1,500.

"We believe the robbers may have known the victims or were working for someone who knew them," he said.

He urged those with information to contact him at 012-632 0050 - The Star

After 20 years their flats are now deemed safe to be occupied

After waiting for 20 years, the owners of flats of Taman Angkasa were at last given their Certificate of Fitness today. The 2,000 odd residents of 28 blocks of flats received their certificates from the Minister of Federal Territory, Datuk Raja Nong Chik.

The Certificate of Fitness (CF) is an official document that is issued by the city’s authority to acknowledge that a building is safe to be occupied.

I wonder how for for 20 years they had been living in flats that were not recognised as "safe to be occupied".
