A police report has been made.
Malaysians now widely use cashless payments for almost every purchase, with many outlets and even night market vendors accepting QR payments.

Recently, a young Malaysian woman with a bank account balance exceeding RM400,000 allegedly created a fake transaction receipt to evade paying for a RM30 meal at a KL restaurant.

She pretended to scan the restaurant’s provided QR code, but in reality, she was using an app to generate a fake transaction record.

Within approximately 20 seconds, she informed the cashier that the payment was successful and hurriedly left after briefly showing the fraudulent receipt.

Upon closer inspection, the cashier found no record of the woman’s payment and immediately rushed outside to try and catch her.

However, the restaurant did not disclose whether the cashier managed to catch the woman.

The restaurant also reported the incident to the police and urged other businesses to stay vigilant against similar scams.

As cashless transactions become more common, it’s important for both consumers and businesses to stay alert and verify every transaction.
