RM500 Is All Someone Needs To Buy Fake SPM Or STPM Certificates
Forged Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) or Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) certificates can be bought online via WhatsApp for just RM500
The forger, who goes by the name of "Huang", told an undercover reporter from Oriental News Daily that he only needed the name of the student and the school to complete the process.
Huang added that there is no need to meet face-to-face as the whole process can be done via WhatsApp. It is also a precaution for Huang as he does not want to leave behind clues or footprints to be traced back to him later on.
The forger's target audience are school leavers who have failed their SPM or STPM exams and are desperate for a good paper qualification
It is reported that many of his "customers" use this service to get into colleges and universities as well as to apply for jobs when their original results don't meet the qualifications or requirements.
Huang actually guarantees that the records in the Education Ministry's database will change according to the forged certificate
Huang assured that there will be no discrepancies between the forged certificate and the record in the Ministry's database as he has inside people helping him.
'We have been doing this for many years,' Huang told the reporter.
