Woman jailed for theft, forgery and cheating
A woman who stole her elder sister's credit cards and identity card, and went on to commit a series of offences was jailed for 27 months on Wednesday.
Wee Yat Mui, 39, pleaded guilty to eight charges - two each of of theft and forgery and four of cheating - and had 34 other charges considered during her sentencing. The total amount lost in all the charges was $26,254.
A district court heard that the former sales engineer not only made unauthorised transactions on her sister, accountant Wee Yat Lian's credit cards but also impersonated the 43-year-old to apply for the surrender of her insurance policies by forging documents.
She also used her sister's IC to subscribe for three mobile phone lines. After that, she cut up the IC in two and disposed of the pieces.
