After luring them from the Net to hotel rooms, the women's boyfriends or husbands will appear and accuse the victims of having affairs with their partners, before extorting money from them.
MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong said that three men, in their 20s, came to seek his help last year after being cheated in such a way.
"The victims had all agreed for 'trysts' with the women they had befriended in chatrooms and Networking sites, before being confronted by men claiming to be the women's husbands or boyfriends.
"The 'cheated' men then beat up the victims and seize their valuables, before extorting them for money," he said, adding that the women played along as if they were caught unawares when the fact was they had set the trap.
In one of the cases, the culprit demanded RM50,000 from the victim but after Chong's intervention, the latter got away by paying only a small sum.
Chong said there were also other ways one could be cheated, and the latest involved a 28-year-old salesman, who only wanted to be known as Tan.
The man lost a laptop and two mobile phones worth RM4,000 to a girl he had met over the Internet.
"The 24-year-old girl had asked Tan to accompany her to a shopping mall here last Sunday for a "shopping-cum-movie" session.
"The girl had convinced him to bring along his laptop worth more than RM2,000 and to put it in her car.
"Barely 30 minutes into the movie, she borrowed the victim's two mobile phones, on the pretext of making some calls, and left the cinema. She never returned."
This is scary.............is the real world really that cruel ?
No one like to be a lone. and to look for love and hoping for true love in return, is that wrong ?
and some people are taking advantage of it.
because of economic situatiion or just excuse.?
