遇上刮刮樂‧少女逛街被刮走3000



(吉隆坡)一名少女跟朋友逛街購物時,於金三角一帶被刮刮樂成員遊說抽獎,結果不幸被刮走3000令吉。


受害者是蕭小姐(20歲,美容學徒),其父親蔡志安(50歲,學校食堂營業者)週三(5月20日)在武吉免登區國會議員方貴倫的安排下召開新聞發佈會。


已簽合約堅持不退款


他說,事發後,他曾上刮刮樂公司跟有關負責人理論,但對方因其女已簽下合約,而堅持不退還3000令吉。


他說,其女是在5月13日跟朋友一起出門去金河廣場購物逛街,在途中被“刮刮樂”2名年輕男女推銷員糾纏。


當時該刮刮樂推銷員拿著卡讓她試刮,當她刮去卡上的水銀後,推銷員馬上告訴她抽中送出的3份不需付錢的神秘禮物,並要求跟他們其中一名女推銷員到古仔的辦公室領獎。


當到了刮刮樂辦事處之後,她們就被一名自稱鄭先生的人招待。她們被告知如想拿走贏取的禮物就得繳付高達5600令吉政府稅。


由於身上不夠錢,之後她就跟其中一位推銷員到附近的國家銀行提錢。


蕭志安指出,他女兒根本不清楚自己中了甚麼獎,在付款後,才知道贏取的是1個玉床及1個電磁爐。對方還說這兩件物品價值高達一萬令吉。


之後,其女再越想越不甘心及感覺受騙,便告知對方不要上述獎品,要求對方把錢退還給她,但對方卻因已簽合約為由而拒絕退還錢。


“當我知道這件事後,我當晚就偕同妻女上公司跟有關負責人理論。我要求退回一半的錢,但對方卻因已簽合約為由,堅持拒絕退錢,還挑戰我去警局報案。”


“當晚,我們就報案,幾天後入稟消費人仲裁庭。此案定於6月22日開審。”


蔡志安表示,其女兒因很少閱讀報紙,以致輕易被騙。


方貴倫:多閱報免上當


針對蕭小姐的遭遇,方貴倫說,刮刮樂活動無人不知無人不曉,因為媒體已報導了無數次,但在這資訊流通的時代,仍有很多民眾會誤陷刮刮樂集團設下的騙局。


他也希望警方嚴厲取締刮刮樂集團,保障公眾的利益,同時也希望公眾多看報紙,瞭解社會上發生的事情。

The modus operandi they use to entice consumers is by using the names of branded companies and claiming that the branded companies are sponsoring the prizes.

The "prizes" are normally unknown brands.
The main prize is always a car!
And the "lucky" card holder must show cash money (1000-3000)in order to win a car!

The public must be let known that there is no such thing as free lunch .Nothing ever comes free.
There are FREE things at certain times. Maybe a free sample , but that is all.


The syndicate is a registered company under the name of certain healthcare product. It is registered as a direct sales company.
Normally they uses young girls as their "promoters".
Those working for such companies should know that they are cheating the public and it is considered as fraud case.
Helping to do a fraud is a crime.
have to educate the "promoters" as well.

Dear MP Fong Kui Lun,

They are still out there active in Low Yat, Sg. Wang and Times Square area, I was one of the unlucky one who fell into their trap. I was approached by the teenagers outside Low Yat. It happened on 27th June 2009 and their office is still there at Kuchai Lama. Why our police is not taking any action when there are already so many people fallen prey to them?

The syndicate hire underage teenagers to work for them and I believe the teenagers are unaware of their wrongdoing. They even have a scam website promoting their ridiculously overpriced products - http://pioneer2u.net/.

However, I believe that they can never escape the laws and justice. Even if we couldn't do anything, they will have to face God themselves one day. Just wait for the Judgement day.

Sorry for copy and paste. They are pretty smart to estimate the total can be cheat, by questioning about grand prize free road tax etc.
