Kuala Kubu Bharu Old Town Running 2014 - Scam!


T-shirt Seller Scams Runners

On 14th January I did a blog post on the Kuala Kubu Bharu Old Town Running 2014. In it I asked whether it a real run or a fake one. Please click here to see the post. My constant runners have exposed it for the fake it is. Police reports have been made, and continue to be made. I have been asked by my constant runners to re-post the warning so that others may learn from it. Those who want to go to the actual Facebook page click here. Those who want to visit the scammers Facebook page can click here.  It saddened me to read all the posts today regarding this run. Am so hoping through the help of all our constant runners that this guy can be brought to justice. I won't mention names here in my blog. All the information is available on the Facebook page.  Let this run be a warning to others who just sign up for runs without doing any background checks. 

Do you know this man?


  1. Well at least we know we can trust what we read on: "http://yamiska.blogspot.sg/"

  2. Thanks Mo! I took a big risk when I first posted about this in January. However it all didn't make sense and it just sounded too good to be true. Like I said in another post, if it just falls out of the sky then be mighty suspicious. There are too many runs out there now and lots of money involved. So it wouldn't surprise me if other fraudulent runs pop up. We must all be vigilant and warn others if we suspect something is amiss. We runners must band together to wipeout these scammers!
