Be wary of lucrative job offers abroad — Mohd Azis


KOTA KINABALU: Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman called on jobseekers to be more careful when applying for jobs so as not to be duped by lucrative deals abroad.

He said recruitment fraud offering lucrative salaries abroad had become the modus operandi of irresponsible parties out to make quick profits from desperate jobseekers.

“Those seeking for employment should be more cautious … we are aware that there are many scammers out to hoodwink jobseekers. I understand that the Malaysians who were detained in Cambodia were promised jobs with lucrative salaries,” he told reporters after welcoming the arrival of three Malaysian detainees at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport here at 11.40pm on Sunday.

The three Sabahans had earlier arrived at the Kuching International Airport at 2.20pm on Sunday with 40 other Malaysians from Sarawak, after they were detained in a Cambodian jail on suspicion of being involved in illegal online gambling activities.

Elaborating, Mohd Azis said he was grateful to the Cambodian government for the release of all 47 Malaysian detainees. — Bernama
