Dear Khoo,

It happend exactly to me on 24th Feb. 2010 I was driving back and a Black Toyota Vios follow me. After I went out from the car , he came to me saying that I hit his side mirror and asking compensation. I did not realize I hit his car at all. I did not pay the damage on the side mirror I "accidentally " hit. Rather , I suggest we report to police. He is getting angry and saying dirty word and drive away. I managed to get the car no and reported this to police already. The car no is PDJ 2584 New Black Toyota Vios. Spread this to your friends...

Please be pre-alerted that there is a young guy in a black Toyota Vios lurking around Egate and Tesco carpark, claiming that you have accidentally damaged his car while parking yours. After you have parked and walked away, he would approach you and made the claim that you have unknowingly bumped into the side of his car, or hit his light or his side mirror. When you inspect his car, there indeed is the damage.
This guy speaks in Chinese and he would demand for on-the-spot compensation which is a few hundred ringgit-he is known to have asked for RM550!
It has happened to 2 cases, one of which is my family member who had parked in the Egate basement carpark last night.
This guy targets single drivers. Please be careful. He may not be working alone.
