A case brought to light by a trader unveils Bank Islamic Syariah’s deceptions, shedding light on the perilous landscape of investment fraud once again. Fixed-income investment scams like Bank Islamic Syariah have become commonplace in Malaysia, with a very high degree of similarity in fraudulent tactics, but there are still novice investors who fall for the scams.


Bank Islamic Syariah claims to offer lucrative opportunities for financial growth, soliciting clients via WhatsApp. Scammers behind the platform send investment information and a group link to potential victims, kicking off their journey of committing fraud.

Induced by such practices, the client also began his trading journey, however, a trading path that resulted in financial loss. Captivated by the allure of profit-sharing narratives within the group, the client succumbed to the persuasive tactics of the scammer and agreed to participate in the proposed trading package - allegedly leading to profits of up to 10 times more.

However, when the client was informed by the scammer that his account was yielding profits - in reality, fake figures shown in his trading account, he was also required additional payments for broker charges to facilitate withdrawals.
