M'sian man waited for Filipina girlfriend twice at KLIA - but she didn't arrive

Twice, Mr Sean Lee, 31, waited in vain for his online Filipina girlfriend to arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

But on both occasions, despite having paid for her tickets, his dream girl failed to show up.

Mr Lee had met the woman who referred to herself as Miss Sales Vincess through an online dating website.

Relating the incident, Malaysian Chinese Association Public Service and Complaints Department chairman Michael Chong said the woman had convinced Mr Lee that she was from a poor family and was unable to secure a job to make ends meet.

He then transferred a total of RM11,789 (S$4,580) to Miss Vincess to help her, The Star reported.

He even bought her plane tickets from the Philippines to Malaysia on Aug 15 and Nov 22 respectively, said Mr Chong said.

On both days, Mr Lee spent hours waiting at the airport only to find no one by the name of Miss Sales Vincess there.

Said Mr Chong: “Only after I showed him the number of such complaints I received did he realise he had been cheated.”
