Bukit Aman CID director is leading a team to rescue 29 Malaysian victims of online job scams in Cambodia.
rafficked, beaten and locked up far from his family in China, Lu was one of thousands of people in Cambodia forced to operate online scams to line their captors' pockets.
The Ambassador clarifies that the fees paid by victims are to settle fines for overstaying, charges for the issuance of travel documents, meals and hotel accommodation.
More than 20 Chinese nationals are missing at sea after a boat capsized off the coast of Cambodia, an official said Friday.
Our government has done a lot to rescue the human trafficking victims, and has repeatedly urged the public through the media to stay away from suspicious job offers. It has even set up a team of “anti-scam ambassadors” to help convey this all-important message.
In addition to widespread media coverage, it is also hoped that the police, along with our newly appointed “anti-scam ambassadors", will work together to uproot online scamming.
The Cambodian police urge the public, foreigners, embassies and consulates to continue tipping off the authorities after 865 foreign job scam victims were rescued as of August 20.
Unlike our ancestors who still had a chance to go back to their native China if they worked hard and saved up enough money, the “new age coolies” sold to places like Cambodia and Myanmar today might lose their precious lives there and have their body organs harvested by the criminal syndicates for sale in the black market!
