Jailed for cheating with false phone subscription plans

A supervisor of a mobile phone shop received $100 from an accomplice every time he allowed the registration of a phone subscription plan using someone else's identity card. From January to December last year, Gilbert Ong Jun Guan, 26, registered 16 new lines and handed over 16 mobile phones worth nearly $14,000 in total. He pleaded guilty on Monday and was sentenced to jail for a year and three months. A district court heard that he was then working for Comms Equipment, a Starhub dealer with outlets at [email protected] and ION Orchard shopping centres. Early last year, the accomplice, identified as Wayne Chua Wei Yuan in court papers, was believed to have contacted him with the scheme. Ong agreed to go along as he was facing financial difficulties.
