The police have arrested a 31-year-old man who is believed to be involved in at least nine cases of rental scams.

Between 1 and 10 July this year, he collected deposits and rent amounting to almost $15,000 for a unit located in Serangoon North Avenue 1. He then cut off all contact with his victims.

He was arrested on Tuesday evening, a day after the police issued an appeal for information through the media.

If convicted of cheating, he faces up to 10 years in jail and a fine.
