Job scam victims tell of escape via trip to hairdresser

Seven Johor residents who were trapped in a job scam in Cambodia managed to escape after five months by asking to be allowed to go to the hairdresser.

The group comprised a woman and six men, aged between 18 and 34, who had been offered casino jobs but were forced to work for a cryptocurrency scam run by a Taiwanese man.

One of the victims, who wanted to be known as Wan, 34, said they were kept in what was believed to be the syndicate’s operations centre, a hotel in Sok, Phnom Penh.
