KUALA LUMPUR - Her tenant moved out suddenly, disappearing with her computer, watch and RM50 in cash.
But worse was to come for sales and marketing executive Sia Sheue Ni, 33.
She was shocked when Ah Long began to harass her, splashed red paint on her house and smashed the windscreen of her car, demanding that she repay the loans her tenant had taken.
Sia was in for an even bigger shock when she discovered that the tenant had told the Ah Long that he was her husband. He even claimed to be the owner of her house.
Sia had rented the room to the 34-year-old man in November last year.
She said the man had paid his rent on time until last month when he moved out without any notice, taking some of her belongings with him.
"On that same day, Ah Long came to my house and demanded money. Then, more Ah Long appeared in front of the house over the next few days," she told a press conference at the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department here yesterday.
Department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong called on the Ah Long to stop harassing Sia.
"She, too, is a victim of the conman as her property has been damaged," he said.
