Kota Kinabalu: A GRS youth official has expressed grave concern that Sabahans have been victims of overseas employment scams. Deputy head of the Bersatu National Armada, Caesar Mandela Malakun, said he learned that some of them were still untraceable by their families. “This is deeply concerning. I urge families to file a police report if one of their members is missing,” he said.
He stressed that people in Saba should not be fooled by job postings posted on social media that offer lucrative salaries. “I think one of the rules of thumb is to always be wary of all those job postings that sound too good to be true,” he said. Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Abdullah recently said that 148 cases have been reported and of these, 118 Malaysian victims of labor scams in Cambodia alone have been rescued. According to reports, some Malaysians have also fallen for job scams in other countries, such as Thailand and Myanmar.

It has been reported that in Cambodia alone, around 500 Malaysian companies operate in the country and 5,000 Malaysians work and do business there. Investigations by the authorities revealed that the victims were coerced into acting like scammers and only realized the true nature of their work after arriving in this country. Victims who fell prey to employment scam unions were driven by desperation to earn an income to survive after losing their jobs due to Covid-19. “This whole employment scam problem is the worst part of human trafficking and modern slavery and must be condemned,” he added.
