Two more women tell of bad experience with Casanova
By JASON YU
PETALING JAYA: Another two women have come forward to disclose their dreadful encounter with a Casanova who tried to entice them with modelling jobs.
A part-time model who wished to be known only as Ann said she was tricked into booking a hotel room for the man, where she was intimidated into having sex with him.
“He even took my handphone and money later,” she said.
“When I was in the hotel room, I realised I had made a mistake but I went on with what he wanted as I was very scared.”
Last week, several people approached MCA Public Services and Complaints Department Datuk Seri Michael Chong with their stories of their ordeal. They described the Casanova as “not so handsome” who lured women into sleeping with him after offering them supposedly lucrative jobs.
Also present at yesterday's press conference at Chong's office was freelance model and designer Wee Chin Hoon, 26.
Wee said that she was almost duped by the man who made her an offer of RM4,000 for a bikini photoshoot.
“He contacted me through Facebook using the name DK DK Choong Choong' with this amazing offer.
“I wanted to make sure, so I asked him to pay a deposit, to which he declined with many excuses.
“I felt something was wrong, so I ignored his repeated calls,” she said.
Meanwhile, a man whose photograph was published in several Chinese newspapers and implicated as the Casanova clarified that he was not the culprit.
Businessman Terrence Chew, 25, found out from a friend that his picture had been featured in the press.
“I am not the one who conned these women,” he stressed.
Ann and Wee also confirmed that Chew was not the predator.
