Ex-fitness trainer charged with using fake $1,000 notes to buy an iPhone 4, 3 iPads and a MacBook Pro

A former fitness trainer has been charged with using fake $1,000 notes in what is believed to be Singapore's first such case. Mahathir Ramli, 27, is said to have used six of the notes to buy an iPhone 4, three iPads and a MacBook Pro laptop. He bought them in three separate deals, according to charges that were brought up for mention on Thursday in a district court. The first took place in March, when he met three people separately in Hougang and Guillemard Road early one morning, giving them three $1,000 notes. Mahathir is also alleged to have paid another victim for electronic gadgets using two of the fake notes in April at the open carpark at Newton Food Centre.
