RAPPER and social media influencer Caprice, 34, says his wife Farra Inalis, 27, has to seek alternative treatment after being disturbed by jinn (spirits) and sihir (black magic).
Utusan Malaysia reported that Caprice, whose real name is Ariz Ramli, said in an Instagram post that they met an ustaz several times to seek a cure.
“Before this, I thought after marriage we will face fewer difficulties but actually, over the past seven months, there were a lot of new things we had to deal with.
“I just want to know why are many still unhappy with my wife,” he said.
According to Caprice, there was also a recent incident when three men disturbed his wife by calling her in the middle of the night.
Caprice also said an unknown person harassed his wife by sending her WhatsApp messages.
He said the man’s actions were outrageous and a breach of his wife’s privacy and safety.
> A cosmetics trader who was the victim of a Hari Raya investment scheme scam has to pawn her possessions to compensate other victims who were deceived by the same syndicate to the tune of RM4mil.
Harian Metro reported that Nurul Natrah Idayu Ramlee, 31, said she had paid almost RM800,000 to other victims who wanted her to take responsibility as she was the cause of them incurring losses.
Nurul Natrah faced criticism from these other victims, who had accused her of abetting the syndicate behind the fraud.
“I admit it started from me after advertising the ‘investment’ in question on my WhatsApp status, and they (victims) transferred money based on the link provided to my bank account.
“It was true the money went into my account, but I transferred it to some bank account as directed by an individual known as ‘Datin Ida’.
“For God’s sake, the money is not in my hands and I am also a victim in this incident because I also invested RM100,000,” she said.
She admitted that she was lured into promoting the investment scheme after hearing that her friend had received lucrative returns from “Datin Ida”. In fact, she also received RM190,000 in bonuses before “Datin Ida” disappeared.
Nurul Natrah said she had to use the bonuses to pay the other victims.
