Former engineer Goh Lee Yin, who has been in and out of court for theft, was back in court today to plead guilty to cheating victims of luxury bags.

The 31-year-old woman, who is now unemployed, faced four charges in all, three of which were for deceiving the victims into parting with six Hermes bags worth $110,700.

The prosecution proceeded on two charges of cheating involving Ms Cindy Lestari of $67,500 and Ms Lynette Ong Pei Lin of $29,500 on Oct 22 and Nov 9 last year respectively.

A Community Court heard that Goh saw an online advertisement posted by Ms Lestari, 21, to sell two of her Hermes bags last October. Goh responded and introduced herself as Audrey.
