> Sin Chew Daily reported that a sales promoter at a jewellery store in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, had sought the help of netizens to look for a woman who allegedly swapped a RM5,000 gold accessory set with a fake one.
According to a post on social media, during the 3pm incident on Dec 6, the woman told the promoter that she had to get her credit card from her car. However, she did not return.
When the promoter went to check on the set, she found it to be fake. As a result, she had to take responsibility and pay for the loss.
The promoter, who is married, said she had just started working recently to help support her family but ended up being a burden to them.
A police report has been lodged.
