Met at the same occasion, Nuril, Hannah’s daughter said, at that time Hannah was approached by a man who claimed to be an oil king from Singapore who wanted to ask for an address and claimed he would exchange foreign currency which he kept in his suitcase.
Suddenly an old man came and persuaded Hannah to help “the oil king”. Then came a car that according to the old man was his colleague who worked in the bank.
Because of the hypnotic influence Hannah then entered the car with the old man and the oil king. In the car Hannah was asked to withdraw a sum of money at a bank in the Cipulir region, South Jakarta by the perpetrators.
This type of mode was also experienced by another victim named Sumini. It’s just that the role of the old man in the case of Hannah was replaced by a middle-aged woman. As a result of this incident Hannah suffered a loss of Rp. 40 million, while the losses suffered by Sumini reached Rp. 70 million.
