An operations executive who spent $10,000 which had been wrongly credited into his savings account was jailed for three months on Wednesday.

Muhammad Dzulhisham Rusly, 24, pleaded guilty to dishonestly misappropriating the amount from July 4 to 27 last year.

A district court heard that on June 28 last year, his former employer, WMG, a distribution mailing house, mailed out a $1,015 cheque to him after he was terminated that month. He deposited the cheque into his POSB savings account.

On July 5, the company's accountant found out that the cheque that had been issued to Dzulhisham and deposited was $11,015, and not $1,015.
