Singaporean nabbed over Malaysia fake money scam
(01-06 18:49)

Police in Malaysia have arrested a middle-aged Singaporean along with two Chineses in a raid against a "black money" syndicate in Kuala Lumpur at the end of December, reports said.
The New Paper reported that the suspects had entered Malaysia on tourist visas on multiple occasions, and used a Kuala Lumpur apartment since 2012 where they also stored counterfeit currency notes.
In the scam, people are duped into paying for boxes of "black money" which can be washed clean with a "special liquid.''
