Fake MNS Certificate

I think many of you already read Sifu Dickson Niew post about Fake Malaysia Numismatic Society (MNS) certificate for Sapuloh Watermark agong banknote. If you have not read it, you can go to his blog post; FORGERY OF MALAYSIA NUMISMATIC SOCIETY CERTIFICATES. That girl don't just using MNS name but also Jabatan Warisan Negara and Bank Negara Malaysia logo. This is a serious offence in Penal Code under Chapter XVIII since she is deceiving people by using society and government agencies names/logo; using a Malaysia Numismatic Society name registered with ROS (Registrar of Societies), most probably fake signature by MNS late President Mr. E. E. Sim (who was a judge and the Registrar of the High Court), Using BNM (Bank Negara Malaysia) logo and also using Jabatan Warisan Negara name without their consent.

Provision in Penal Code:
Making a false document
464. A person is said to make a false document—
(a) who dishonestly or fraudulently makes, signs, seals or executes a document or part of a document, or makes any mark denoting the execution of a document, with the intention of causing it to be believed that such document or part of a document was made, signed, sealed or executed by, or by the authority of a person by whom or by whose authority he knows that it was not made, signed, sealed or executed, or at a time at which he knows that it was not made, signed, sealed or executed;
(b) who without lawful authority, dishonestly or fraudulently, by cancellation or otherwise, alters a document in any material part thereof, after it has been made or executed either by himself or by any other person, whether such person be living or dead at the time of such alteration;or
(c) who dishonestly or fraudulently causes any person to sign, seal, execute or alter a document, knowing that such person by reason of unsoundness of mind or intoxication cannot, or that by reason of deception practised upon him he does not, know the contents of the document or the nature of the alteration.

A friend asked me yesterday if I ever seen such thing before. This is a first time it came with MNS certificate, I have seen a Sapuloh Watermark Agong with a certificate signed by Silat Mahaguru/Pawang/Bomoh before. These kind of people are so desperate to sell their item and capable to fake a document, as long as they can sell their item. I hope MNS, BNM and Jabatan Warisan Negara will take firm action to these people. To anyone who have bought a Sa-puloh Watermark Agong with a fake certificate from MNS, you need to report it to your nearest police station since it is also an offence to own such false document.
