After Malaysia suspended calling visa, there are Myanmar nationals who were trying to come illegally and some were cheated, making them lost property, according to an official from Lovely Heart Philanthropic Myanmar Youth Blood Donor group (Kuala Lampur-Malaysia).
“All calling visas were suspended, making workers unable to come officially so some Myanmar nationals are trying to come here illegally. We have seen many scams on illegal migration to Malaysia, because we have received calls for help. Brokers asked K7-8 million giving guarantee of job in Malaysia, so Myanmar workers paid them lump sum in Myanmar. But they are asked money again by some brokers here and brokers in Myanmar turned off phone or irresponsibly responded when they contacted. They don’t have money to pay, eventually they had to request their family to help, making them to pawn house and farm land. There are a lot of brokers who make our people getting into troubles,” he said.
Those come to Malaysia from Myanmar are being cheated, he said.
Right now, jobs are scarce everywhere in Malaysia and workers are getting into troubles, he said.
Those who already arrived in Malaysia will need to be alert and also need to be cautious about brokers who are cheating job seekers, he warned. — MT/ZS/ED
