I believe this is a high school. Does anyone have experience with this employer?

I had received an employment offer from:
Mr. Abi Noor Ashok (Principal)
Kolej Yayasan Saad Melaka
P.O Box 495,
75670 Ayer Keroh, Melaka,
Malaysia
Call us +60 626 3157/+60 14 3707 790 

Mr. Ashok then asked me to contact:
Malaysian Immigration Service Department
Mail: info@immigrationservicedept.com
Mr. Idelhaj  Jamali Usman, Head of Immigration Officer

Mr. Usman subsequently sent me an invoice for an amount exceeding $2,000 US  ($9,360 MYR) for two-years employment visa, national ID card, teaching certificate, tax clearance, courier delivery service, and one year flight ticket, with instructions to make a bank transfer to a CIMB bank account.

The Malaysia Immigration service says that only the sponsor/employer can apply for the work visa. And common sense tells us that official funds would not be paid through a bank transfer to a personal account.

I have reported this to two different departments of the Immigration Department of Malaysia.

This makes two horrible experiences with employers in Malaysia. KYP then this one. It's a shame that these institutions bring such shame on Malaysia and its people.

Hi, I would just point out that this offer did not come from the school. The school is legit, but the offer isn't. This is the same scam that has been posted on a number of ESL job sites using the names and details of real schools but with false email addresses. A reputable school in Malaysia will have a .edu.my email address, in this case _____@kysm.edu.my . Also, in Malaysia it is the education institute's responsibility to apply for your employment visa as they must submit sensitive financial & other business information to the immigration department in support of their choice to hire an expat teacher. Any immigration department email address will be a .gov one and in Malaysia, ______@imi.gov.my. A gmail or .com or similar generic email address is a red flag for a scam as well as any request for money upfront.
