    Unhappy University graduate jailed for credit card fraud l

    Just read this Yahoo news, "Malaysian jailed 30 months for credit card fraud". It looks nothing special from the title but when I read further, I was shocked to find out that the accused is an unemployed university graduate.

    Like the judge said he is naive in believing that he can earn commissions from buying goods for someone with credit cards given to him.

    His future is ruined and I feel so sad for his parents who has invested so much on him not just monies but all their efforts have vapourised into the air. How sad! Sigh!

    Malaysia Boleh, churning out half-baked graduates on a large scale. Come out, no job, go rob (and/or steal).

    I think human beings do make mistake. I think no one can say for sure their kids won't make mistake in their life journey..

    No need to bash the gomen, the education system, etc. each time the slightest opportunity arises.

    Like what HTCHONG pointed out, it is very sad for the parents.

    Sometimes (in fact, most of the time), I fail to understand the Law...

    He was sentenced to 30 months jail for possessing of fake credit cards... but a Singaporean private banker was sentenced to two weeks jail for fraud relating to Malaysia's 1MDB financial scandal.. !! On top of the mere two weeks jail, what about the multi-million commissions money she earned in facilitating the transactions !!

    http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/12/1...n-1mdb-scandal

    The charges relate to pressuring colleagues not to disclose a Malaysian client, Low Taek Jho of moving hundreds of millions of dollars that originated from 1MDB. Singapore was one of several global authorities investigating alleged fraud at the fund. I guess this is a good example of life is never fair...

    HAHAHAHA... this is a very old skulduggery. Back in the mid80s, in a drinking joint in a D'masara pub, I was intro to a friend of a friend of a friend and was offered Rm5,000 cash to hand over my Citibank Gold and not to report it 'stolen/lost' for 24 hours... enough time for a runner to fly to Paris (LV q time included )for a shopping spree.
