A fun vacation in Cambodia turned into a nightmare for a Malaysian woman known only as Miss Qiu.

Miss Qiu travelled to Cambodia for a holiday on 23 July 2022. However, she was cornered by a group of Chinese nationals on 7 August while she was having dinner and was prevented from leaving.

The Star reported that no one came to her aid although she screamed for help. When the group failed to force her to transfer all her funds from her bank accounts to them, they decided to trade her off to human traffickers.

She was then sold to a scam call centre and forced to work for them.

Miss Qiu only managed to get in touch with Melaka MCA Youth chief Denis Lee Han Lim on 15 August when she was forced to quarantine after contracting Covid-19.

Upon obtaining her details, Lee quickly relayed the information to the office of Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng through social media on 21 August.

On 23 August, Miss Qiu informed Lee that she was finally rescued. She’s also currently helping the police with the investigation before returning to Malaysia.

According to Lee, Malaysians are in high demand by crime syndicates due to their proficiency in multiple languages.

Once forcibly recruited, they’re tasked to scam mostly Westerners.

It’s not the first time Malaysians have been scammed by human trafficking syndicates. They usually lure unwitting and desperate victims with the promise of high pay in a foreign land.
