As reported by Kosmo, All the victims were from the northern and southern states of the country, and they have lost more than RM810,000 after they were informed by the airline that their names were not listed on their flights to Turkey, Paris, and Santorini.
Apart from that, there was no representative from the travel agency there (obviously). They only received a call at about 9.35pm from the agency to inform them that their flight was cancelled. Cases like this have happened before in Malaysia. Early January 2018, several individuals were scammed by a lady as she promised them a dream vacation to Korea. Another case was reported 3 months ago involving another scam by a travel agent, and 23 victims lost a total of RM53,000.
Impian kira-kira 120 individu untuk menikmati percutian ke benua Eropah lebur selepas mereka terkandas di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA), Sepang kelmarin dipercayai akibat ditipu oleh sebuah agensi pelancongan.
Kesemua mangsa yang tiba dari negeri di utara dan selatan tanah air turut mengalami kerugian lebih RM810,000 selepas dimaklumkan nama mereka tiada nama senarai penumpang untuk penerbangan ke Turki, Paris serta Santorini.
Selain itu, tiada wakil agensi pelancongan berkenaan di lokasi sebaliknya rata-rata mereka yang menunggu sejak tengah hari telah menerima panggilan pada pukul 9.35 malam daripada agensi itu memaklumkan penerbangan mereka dibatalkan.
