Recently, a syndicate that offered a working holiday package in Switzerland was exposed after the victims discovered that their passports were sold at RM2000 per book, KwongWah reported.

One of the victims, Tan said that she was attracted by the perks offered by the package. Besides free accommodation and meals, the job also comes with a staggering RM15,000 as salary per month.

Enticed by the bait, Tan who runs her own business signed up with the syndicate and handed in her personal details including her passports and a coloured photocopy of her Identification Card.

“I reckoned that my employees can take care of my business, so I wanted to use this opportunity to travel the world and earn some money at the same time,” Tan said.

She also revealed that the syndicate would meet up with the victims in different ways.

For instance, on January 22, the syndicate set up a meeting at a cafe in Puchong, Selangor for the victims to hand in their particulars and passports. Tan said that there were about 20 other people who attended the meeting. She believed that they had signed up for the package as well.

The middleman then told the victims to assemble in Johor on March 5 so that they could take a flight from Singapore to Switzerland on the next day.

Apparently the middleman was waiting with all the victims at the airport until the afternoon. Then they were told that their passports and other documents went missing and the flight had to be canceled.

While other victims went home and awaited for further instruction, Tan and 3 other victims smelt something fishy. They lodged a police report shortly after.

Back in Kuala Lumpur, a rumour caught Tan’s attention.

“I heard that someone was selling passports and they were looking for interested buyers. They had 300 passports in their hands at that moment,” Tan said.

With the help of her friend, Tan disguised herself as a potential buyer and reached out to the seller. Tan even received a picture of the stacks of passports as assurance that they possessed 300 passports. The price quoted for each passport was RM2000.

Tan and the seller agreed to meet up in Kuala Lumpur. To her surprise, the person who showed up was one of the middlemen who previously dealt with Tan regarding the working holiday package.

Tan and 3 other victims are currently seeking help from DAP’s Temiang assemblyman, Ng Chin Tsai as the police didn’t file the case and asked the victims to hire lawyers and settle it in court.
