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: [email protected]
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.

This is why researching any position is critical. There are enough decent employers in-country if one is willing to take the time to scour the job adverts.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

IN ALL CASES - If the job remuneration is higher than the norm for the region and the required qualifications are less than expected for the salary offered you can expect a scam.

EVERY TIME you are asked to send money it is a scam. You may need to pay for your visa at the consulate/embassy but never SEND money.
