Employers or foreign workers who had made payments to secure a temporary Immigration Department Enforcement Card (E-card) should lodge a police report as they are likely to have been cheated.

This is because the process to secure an E-card is absolutely free, immigration department director-general Mustafar Ali told Malaysiakini.

"I would like to stress that no agent can be used to register for an E-card because workers and employers will be cheated," he said when contacted yesterday.
