Malaysians should be careful and should not easily get fooled by holiday trips offered at unbelievably low prices.
A group of seven special needs students from Pulau Pinang saw their dream to visit Jeju Island in South Korea dashed after they fell victim to a holiday scam.
They were among 200 individuals who claimed they were cheated by a travel agency, which offered cheap overseas holiday packages via Facebook page, MS JOM TRAVEL.

We called, emailed and even sent messages via Whatsapp. Initially, they replied but later on, there were no more response.)

Don’t cheat people. The public also should not fall victim to such scams. Is it logical for you to go on a holiday overseas for RM1,000? Even a three-day holiday in Johor Bahru, it’s not enough. We have to be smart and don’t allow them to cheat us with unreasonable offers.)
