Malaysian youths claim to have been trafficked into Cambodia and forced to cheat people on the phone by syndicate

More than 50 Malaysian youth are being held captive in Cambodia by a syndicate that forces them to scam people online.

MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Michael Chong claimed that more than 10 youths in Cambodia had called him since the beginning of the year, begging him to come to their rescue.

“They pleaded with me not to tell their parents because they don’t want their parents to worry. Many of their parents don’t even know that their children are in Cambodia,” he said in a press conference today.
