Give me RM2,000 and I give you a new wife

It took only three days for a conman to deceive a senior citizen into parting with his hard-earned cash (or maybe pension money).

A man approached a senior citizen with an offer of a marriage with a young woman with only RM700 in marriage fee, a gold chain and RM1,100 for a wedding feast. This is much cheaper than the nomral cost of a marriage between RM10,000 to RM20,000.

The 67-year old victim lodged a police report at Rawang police station after he realised he had been cheated. He had given the money and the gold chain to the man witnessed by his supposedly new wife.

He lodged a police report.after failing to contact the man in order to proceed with the marriage.
