TikTok user @smackytackyflacky shared how she and her sister were apparently scammed at a hair salon in Kuala Lumpur.
She shared that she is from Malaysia but was born and raised in Singapore her whole life.
She shared how she got “scammed” of $1.4k in Malaysia and asked her viewers whether they think its a scam or not and to help “enlighten” her.
Her sister had found the salon on Xiaohongshu, a Chinese social media and e-commerce platform, and urged the both of them to patronise it.
She said that during the appointment, she received the “shock of her life” as the total bill came up to RM1,400 for a bleach job and a haircut.
She described the salon as being a “hole in the wall in Setapak”, and that she started panicking when the salon owner began on bleaching her sister’s hair.
She said that because the salon had already started bleaching her sister’s hair, “I can’t unbleach it so I sucked it up and paid 1.4k.”
