Avoid fraud visa agents and fake websites
The web is flooded with fake Malaysian visa websites. You will come across fraud agents as well. These agents/websites just rob you of your money.
Ideally, you should never pay more than 10-25% of the visa fee initially. You pay the entire amount only after your visa gets approved. You can check the status of your visa on the official government website to know whether it has actually been approved or not.

evisamalaysia.in (Just pay 10% of the Malaysia visa fee initially and the rest after visa approval)
windowmalaysia.my (This is the Malaysian government site for eVisa and it crashes too often)
Please avoid all other websites as these websites will just scam you and run away with your money.
