PKPMP was referring to a message that has gone viral whereby an individual received a phone call purportedly from officer at Penang courts, who claimed that he (the officer) had been instructed to send a letter to the individual concerned.
The officer then told the individual that he was waiting outside his house and asked to open the door.
PKPMP in a media statement stressed that such calls were made by fraudsters out to cheat people.
As a result, PKPMP advised the people to be cautious and in the event of receiving similar phone calls, they should refer to the court authorities.

The message that went viral, among others claimed that the officer said that he had brought a letter from the court which allows him and other employees to seize items from the individual’s premises due to outstanding debts.
The individual then asked to meet the officer at a police station and the officer agreed while threatening to do something to the individual if the person did not go to the police station.
When the individual arrived at the Jelutong police station, the officer was not there and when contacted, it went to voicemail.
