Many of us are searching for jobs just to be able to cope with the rising cost of living.

These days, many unscrupulous people are posting some “too-good-to-be-true” job postings overseas. Most of the time, these jobs are listed as Customer Service Representatives and are very high-paying.

Job Postings

“If you want to earn fast money, look here. Salary + commission. Salary: RM8,000 – 10,000. Based in Thailand, welcome 18-32 years old.”

Lured by these ads, some Malaysians have travelled overseas and found themselves to be subjects of abuse.

According to Sin Chew Daily, these job posters target those ages 18-30. Li Han Lin of the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department has said that these job scams are becoming more rampant.

After the victims have gone overseas (normally Myanmar) they will be brought to a remote place where they are forced to work without being paid.

Do Job

For illustration purposes only.

There are about 4,000+ people in the “base camp” and about 10% of them are Malaysians.

Some of them assume the roles of customer service representatives while others do a variety of other jobs. If they do not meet the requirements, they will be punished via beatings, electrocution, force-fed mice, chilli or bitter gourd.

Some will be under house arrest and will not be permitted to eat. Trackers were installed on their phones while some got their phones confiscated.

Job Abuse

For illustration purposes only.

Although there were some who have escaped, they worry that their family will be “disturbed” by these people so they do not dare to report it to the police.

Li Han Lin says that he has received about 10 reports of these incidents. So, he urges the victims to report to the police about what they faced so that the authorities can take action.

He also hopes that parents are aware of their children’s actions so that they will not fall victim to this kind of human trafficking scam.

This certainly sounds very scary! Remember to do your own background search on companies when applying for jobs.
