Two men, aged 45 and 57, went to the Maxis Centre in Jalan Ampang on Saturday, 18 April, and demanded for 10 VIP numbers. However, they became annoyed when given only two numbers and told the staff that they would return for the rest.

According to City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad, the two men told the MAXIS staff that if they did not get the rest of the numbers that they had asked for, they would cause trouble when they returned on Tuesday, 21 April.

Both of them returned on Tuesday and became aggressive when they still did not get the numbers they had asked for, The Star reported. They caused a stir and splashed yellow paint at Menara Maxis. According to The Star, the two men made a living by selling special vehicle registration plates and phone numbers.
