ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – The Malaysian government is considering tightening laws to protect its citizens from being conned by syndicates offering fake job offers abroad.
Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said many Malaysians were victims of scams as the syndicates were hiding abroad, including in Myanmar.
“We have taken a rather tough stand. We also urge Malaysians to be more vigilant and not easily deceived.
“The Communications and Digital Ministry and the Royal Malaysia Police are taking necessary measures including tightening laws,” he told Malaysian reporters after ending his two-day work visit in Thailand, Bernama reported.
