The daily also reported that a housewife managed to get back RM30,000 (S$12,936), after she was overcharged by a Chinese herbal shop in Li Jiang, China.
Li Xiu Chen bought the herbal products worth RM3,000 from the shop using her credit card in May but the shop charged her RM30,000 instead.
Li only found out about it when she returned to Malaysia. She sought help from various organisations including the Chinese Embassy in Malaysia but was unsuccessful.
The shop voluntarily returned the money after she complained to the China Tourism Department.
The shop operator wanted Li to write a letter stating that it was a technical error but she refused to do so.
"Many people think it's impossible to get back our money after being cheated by shop owners in China. I want to tell Malaysians that we can do it," she said.
