Recently, there have been plenty of cases about job scams. The scam targets people who look for jobs online by promising them a lucrative salary in a seemingly nice location. Unfortunately, reality is far from what they promise. Their victims usually end up in a different location and are forced into indentured services.
Many have fallen victim to them, such as this Malaysian woman. Although she managed to escape with minimal injuries, others have not been as lucky. In fact, it was recently discovered that a Taiwanese influencer suffered a similar fate. Not only were they tricked into working in Cambodia, they were also sexually assaulted.
A member of the Global Anti-Scam Organisation (GASO) recently shared the influencer’s experience. According to them, the influencer had gotten introduced to a job in Cambodia. They had set off for the job. However, upon arriving in Cambodia, everything went wrong.
First, the influencer’s passport was confiscated once they got off the plane. Shortly afterwards, they were sold and resold 4 times. They also endured continuous sexual assault which was supposedly done in turns. The member claimed the influencer was sexually assaulted nine times in seven days. Aside from the sexual assault, they were also severely beaten and electrocuted.
Despite everything, the influencer continued to resist their captors. They only stopped the assault after she was covered in blood. They then asked the influencer to be a part of their love scam or be prostituted. Luckily, the influencer managed to get themselves out by contacting Taiwanese YouTuber 好棒Bump for help. The information was transferred to the GASO who then coordinated a rescue with the Cambodian military and police.
The GASO member later explained that victims usually did not contact the police themselves as they ran the risk of being sold again. “There may be good policemen,” the member said. “But we haven’t encountered them.”
