FACEBOOK has been abuzz the last few days following a viral video which depicted a wedding planner being ‘attacked’ for allegedly scamming happy couples out of their money, after she failed to uphold her end of the bargain.
On Sunday (August 27), Rose Eusoff uploaded a short clip to Facebook – revealing to netizens that their caterer, Zurin Jundi Wedding Planner, did not show up to the wedding and subsequently forced the family to prepare one dish for their attending guests.
“I’m at my brother in-law’s wedding reception in Johor. The celebrated couple is marching towards us and yet, the caterer has yet to turn up,” Rose said.
“There’s no food. We’re devastated as we only manage to serve one dish to our guests.”
But after the video went viral and accumulated hundreds and thousands of views, past clients of the entity came forward with their woes – sharing that they too were victimised by the irresponsible business entity.
Zainatulazlina Zailan relayed that her brother Zuinul was one of many who were swindled out of tens of thousands of ringgit after the same wedding planner ‘disappeared’ and conveniently failed to answer their calls.
“Our calls straight went to voicemail. It was only after the reception did they finally responded to our WhatsApp messages and played the victim,” she recalled.
“We’ve filed a police report; if you do the crime, you have to pay the deed. The catering crew were absent, the dais was set up six hours prior the wedding and the canopies arrived at the dead of night.”
Meanwhile, Baitul Muslim also revealed that 91 couples hailing from various states throughout the nation had been victims as well and therefore, making the total loss a whopping half a million.
It is understood that the woman behind the notorious business entity has promised to pay her clients the money that she owes them by next month and even went as far as typing out her confession in black and white accompanied by her signature.
Amidst the wave of shock and disbelief projected by netizens, perhaps this can serve as a lesson for future brides and grooms to always be cautious and to always ask for testimonies from past clients before hiring someone for their big day. – Malaysian Digest
