Never leave your car unattended when stopping at Plus highway Restaurant & Rest Area (R&R) particularly South bound ( Seremban R&R, Senawang R&R and further)
Modus of Operation
The syndicate will place a person at R&R area. After you park and leave your car, and go to restaurant or toilet, this guy will go under your car engine and make a deep cut on your car radiator hose. It is an easy job to do since the hose is made of rubber. When you re-start your journey, the cut hose will cause water leakage, hence engine cooling will reduce. After driving for a few kilometres, engine over heating will result.
Not long after that, a tow truck will approach you from behind to "assist" you.
Several hundred cars have already fallen to this scam since the past 6 months.
A victim claimed to have paid a bill amounting to RM2,800/- for the tow service.
Whatever the outcome may be, the moral of this event is
DON'T TRUST ANYBODY EXCEPT THE HIGHWAY AUTHORIZED TOW TRUCK DRIVER TO TOW YOUR VEHICLE IF THIS HAPPEN TO YOU ON THE HIGHWAY !
PLUS will provide tow services to tow your car to your destination toll gate free of charge. Make use of the emergency no. / phone provided along the highway.
