KOTA ISKANDAR: Two special officers of the state Women Development and Tourism Committee chairman Liow Cai Tung have lodged police reports on a hoax phone call and text message requesting for donations.
Ahmad Anwar Asyraf Ismail, 35, and Jessica Oh, 32, both received the hoax call and text message on yesterday where the caller introduced himself as Kodi.
Kodi said his uncle who was a good friend of Liow had passed away recently.
He claimed Liow had promised to donate a sum of RM1,000 for Kodi's family.
Kodi forwarded a text message which he claimed was from Liow and asked the two officers to handle the donation.
Both officers lodged a police report after they found there was no such instruction from Liow.
Both held a press conference at the state administration centre here today and cautioned the public to beware of such a hoax.
