The Star Malaysia - - Views -

POP­U­LAR ac­tress Rozita Che Wan ad­mit­ted to be­ing cheated of RM50,000 by a busi­ness­man “Datuk” over plans to come up with a per­fume a year ago, Har­ian Metro re­ported.

Rozita, pop­u­larly known as Che Ta, said the same busi­ness­man also re­cently cheated ac­tor Aeril Zafrel and ac­tress Wawa Zainal.

“I thought that I was the only one be­ing conned. It turned out that both Aeril and Wawa were also cheated. How­ever, I did not lodge any po­lice re­port be­cause there was no writ­ten agree­ment be­tween us.

“I have asked the busi­ness­man many times to re­turn my money but there was no re­sponse from him,” she said, adding that she had never been cheated out of so much money be­fore.

“I hope he re­ceives his come­up­pance from God. I lost RM50,000 but God will re­plen­ish my for­tune,” she said, adding that the busi­ness­man had a lux­u­ri­ous life­style.

She said she had kept all ev­i­dence of her pay­ments to the busi­ness­man.

>The daily also re­ported that cock­les, which used to be the cheap­est among all seafood, are now get­ting more ex­pen­sive, to the point that they are be­ing dubbed “rich men’s food”, re­ported Har­ian Metro.

A check in mar­kets around Sen­tul and Se­layang showed that very few traders were sell­ing cock­les. Those that did were sell­ing the seafood at very high prices.

Some traders were sell­ing Grade C cock­les for be­tween RM9 and RM14 per kg while those sold with­out shells were go­ing for be­tween RM20 and RM26.90 per kg.

At the Se­layang wet mar­ket, the prices were slightly cheaper, at be­tween RM10 and RM12 per kg for Grade A, be­tween RM7 and RM8 per kg for Grade B and RM3 per kg for Grade C.

Fish­eries De­part­ment’s re­searcher Dr Alias Man said the in­crease in price was linked to re­duced pro­duc­tion over the past few years.

“The re­duc­tion in the rate of pro­duc­tion of cock­les is not only hap­pen­ing in Se­lan­gor. It in­volves the en­tire coun­try’s coast,” he said.

Deal gone sour: Rozita dur­ing the launch of her per­fume.
