Police launch infoline on commerical crimes

KUALA LUMPUR, The public will now have a platform to find out about commercial crimes such as the Macau scam and other dubious loan schemes with the setting up of Infoline by the Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) of the Royal Malaysia Police (PRDM).

Bukit Aman CCID director Datuk Mazlan Mansor said that apart from making enquiries, the platform would enable the public to channel information and complaints regarding such crimes.

It was also established to improve the delivery system through fast and accurate delivery of services to the community.

He said the new platform could also be used as a medium for reviewing and obtaining confirmation of commercial cases.

“Police reports and case developments can be reviewed by submitting information such as police report numbers and screen shots of police reports,” he said in a statement today.

He said the public could check or channel information on commercial cases using the CCID Infoline number at 013-2111222.

“The platform only operates via SMS (short messaging service) as well as WhatsApp. No voice calls will be accepted or sent out of the Infoline.

“Operating hours are from 8 am to midnight every day and feedback on complaints, information or inquiries received will be given as soon as possible,” he said.

Mazlan added that complaints made should be through phone numbers registered with a telecommunications company in Malaysia.

“The information or details of the complaint must not be malicious and no prank calls will be entertained.

“Legal action will be taken should there be parties who intentionally provide false information,” he said.
