KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 – Cosmetic company founder, Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman claimed to have been robbed by one of his helpers on Wednesday, with loss estimated over RM40,000.
Aliff Syukri, 30, said he was robbed of cash and furniture by the woman who had been working for him for a few months.
He said he managed to recover the furniture, after tracking the woman, in her 50s, who was believed to be staying in a bungalow in Shah Alam.
He had also posted three pictures and screengrabs taken from two videos related to the incident on his Intagram account.
“I only wanted to help her, who is a local, when I took her in. I assigned her to keep my mobile phone used for business deals. She had abused my trust and stole cash and items from me. I don’t know if there were other items involved.
“It was not my intention to shame her (by viralling the pictures and videos), but I have repeatedly asked her to return my belongings. She refused to do so. I had no choice but to bring her to the police station.
“I also learned that she had cheated some of my customers. She had asked to them to deposit the money meant for the cosmetic products into her own account. I believe she has accomplices,” said Aliff.
Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din when contacted confirmed a report was made on the incident and that investigation was ongoing. – NST
