‘I went undercover with a Cambodian job scam via social media’

Cambodian police recently rescued 16 young Malaysians who said they were held captive by an online syndicate after being recruited to be “customer service workers”.

The reporter, posing as a Chinese youth with little work experience and seeking to pay off some debts, found the syndicate’s details in a Facebook posting and contacted them through WhatsApp messages.
