Following the joint raids on Genneva Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Pageantry Gold Bhd, Caesar Gold Sdn Bhd and Worldwide Far East Bhd by the Royal Malaysian Police, Bank Negara Malaysia, Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism and the Companies Commission of Malaysia are mobilising the necessary resources to expedite the investigations into these companies.
These companies are being investigated jointly by the relevant enforcement agencies for suspected offences among which include illegal deposit taking, money laundering, tax evasion and avoidance, misrepresentation including false description and appointment of agents without licence.
The assets and the accounts seized and frozen arising from the raids are preserved for the purpose of facilitating investigation into the suspected offences and to protect the interest of the investors.
Any enforcement actions by the relevant authorities on unregulated financial and investment schemes are carried out to protect members of the public from risking their hard earned monies. Members of the public should be cautious of investment schemes that promise high returns over a short period of time with an arrangement that guarantees the return of the principal amount invested. Members of the public are advised to check with the relevant authorities when dealing with companies or individuals offering seemingly attractive business opportunities or financial services that are not licensed by the authorities.
