Wife Ends Up With Abusive Boyfriend After Searching Online
PETALING JAYA: A saleswoman who thought she had found love online ended up with a boyfriend from hell.

They became a couple a month later and first met in person in October, in Genting Highlands.
However, just a day after their first meeting, the man told her that he needed the money to pay off some car loans.
“He also borrowed money from me to pay his phone bill and his rent. He also asked me about my monthly salary and scolded me if I didn’t pay his bills on time,” she said. declared at a press conference organized on Wednesday April 7. by Datuk Seri Michael Chong, Head of the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department.
She also said the 31-year-old would force her to borrow money from loan sharks and send her naked pictures of herself.
He even tried to control his physical appearance.
“Around January 27 of this year, he started asking me to wake up at 5:30 am to exercise. He would force me to register daily as proof, ”she said.
The family’s intervention finally made her realize that this was not a normal relationship.
Having had enough, she broke up with the man on March 23, having handed him RM17,000 since October.
