Beware of Scammers at airport

There are so many scam activities at airports. One of them was a scam artist that I had seen with my own eyes. The operation is simple. They just dress neatly and help to lift luggages from some vehicles or taxis on arrival. They will offer to help with the check-in and the Customs.

Sometimes before boarding or before you are about to take a cab they will be asking for money of about RM50 or RM100 cash. This also happens in KLIA especially to foreigners who are about to take their flight home.

For your information, the check-in services are free.. 
Please be careful.
