The man, who only wanted to be identified as Kai, 25, told based on the assurance, he gave up his position as a quality surveyor here and gave RM7,700 (Malaysian ringgit) to the agent.
He told that he reached the agent named Felix Ong who told he was from an international recruitment agency and immigration called Skynet Kuala Lumpur.
He assured me he could obtain a working holiday visa to New Zealand. After examining the agency's Facebook page and attending their office in a mall at Seri Kembangan, I gave a deposit of 500 Malaysian ringgit on 13 Feb 2019 this year and another4,200 Malaysian ringgit six days later, he told.
Kai told the agent approached him on 3 Mar and said to him that his appeal had failed. When Kai demanded a refund, he was said that the previous payment was non-refundable.
The agent then informed him that he could appeal to other nations like the US, UK, and Australia, where there was a greater opportunity for approval. Understanding how I could not receive my money back, I preferred Australia. Kai then paid the final payment of 3,000 Malaysian ringgit to Felix in 2019 May.
On the day of the flight that is 10 Jun 2019, Kai noticed that the plane ticket Felix had bought for him was a 4-day return ticket it includes accommodation in a hotel plus a sightseeing tour. I also questioned him about my visa and who is my employer, but he said all the details could only be revealed once I arrived there, he told.
Upon landing in Australia, Kai was obstructed by officers of immigration and held for 10 hours prior to being deported. He was banned from moving Australia for 3 years. After I went back, I attempted calling the agent, but my calls were neglected. I moved to their office, but it had shut down, he told.
Chong told Kai was among 7 victims picked up in related scams since 2018. The cumulative losses from those events are near to 1million Malaysian ringgit. I'm sure several more cases go unreported.
