KL man buys penis enlarger online, gets magnifying glass instead
A man in Malaysia who was so eager to improve the size of his manhood bought an enlargement device online, The Star online reported.
When it was delivered, the package indeed yielded an enlargement device – a magnifying glass.
“When he received the package, he was shocked to find a magnifying glass inside,” The Star quoted an official of Kuala Lumpur’s public service and complaint bureau.
“The instructions that came with the package merely read ‘Do not use in sunlight’,” the official added.
According to the report, the victim shelled out 450 Malaysian ringgit for the useless device.
According to the report, the man is one of the many victims of a “misleading scam.”
Lawyer Alex Kok said that unsatisfied customers who wished to sue these scammers would find it difficult to do so due to the dubious nature of the business, the Star report added.
“It is especially hard if there is no proof of purchase, such as receipts,” he said. “We wouldn’t know who to sue or where and how to sue them.”
Records showed 12 victims of online scams have sought assistance from the MCA Public Service and Complaint Bureau since 2012. – Nestor Corrales, INQUIRER.net
