IF BEING told that you can own a People’s Housing Projects (PPR) flat in Jinjang Selatan Tamabahan, Kuala Lumpur for just RM75,000 sounds too good to be true, that's because it is.
In fact, this an old scam that has now resurfaced after first making the rounds in 2015.
Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng, who called for a press conference to highlight the matter, urged the public not to be duped by this bogus deal.
“I received complaints from residents about such a deal being advertised in Facebook last week, so we investigated it.
“There are bogus agents who (purport to) sell PPR units in Jinjang Selatan Tambahan that are meant for squatters who lived in Jinjang Selatan Tambahan.
“The PPR is yet to be built, and the project is on one of the 64 plots of questionable land deals that I highlighted previously,” he said.
Lim warned the culprits to stop cheating the public as he would be bringing in the police and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate the matter.
