Woman jailed for cheating and forgery

By Elena Chong

A WOMAN who cheated her ex-employer of $134,200 and forged tax invoices was jailed for eight months on Friday. Chan Yoke Lan, 35, was also ordered to pay compensation of $23,950 to the victim.

A former sales manager of Regional Design & Contracts, Chan admitted to 10 counts of cheating and five forgery offences committed in 2009 and 2010.

A district court heard that her boss, Mr Yam Kok Wai, 41, gave her money to buy furniture from suppliers at a lower price and to then sell to clients for a profit.

Chan, who was in need of money, lied to Mr Yam that there were clients who wanted to buy furniture from the company, and deceived him into releasing cash and cash cheques to her between September 2009 and May 2010.

The court heard that in October 2009, Chan asked for cash of $6,900 to buy furniture. Suspicious, Mr Yam asked her for tax invoices as proof of purchases from the company which had sold her the furniture.

She then approached her ex-husband and got permission to use the name of his company - KK Far East - which was no longer operational at the time. She created a fake invoice format using a spreadsheet and started issuing forged tax invoices she had created as proof of the fake purchases.

Chan, now unemployed, could have been jailed for up to 10 years on each charge of cheating, and up to four years on each charge of forgery.
