A WOMAN transferred $55,000 to two bank accounts to settle a money laundering case which she was alleged to have been involved in.
Police said the woman, who is in her late 30s, was at home in Choa Chu Kang Street 64 on Dec 4 when she received a call from a woman who claimed to be an officer from the Subordinate Court.
The caller accused her of being involved in a money laundering case and told her to appear in court unless she transferred money to two bank accounts.
The con woman said she would visit the victim at home on Dec 7 with documents to settle her case after the money had been paid up.
The victim made the transfers totalling $55,000 on Dec 6, but the trickster did not turn up the next day.
