23-year-old woman cheated 28 victims of almost $6k after listing Rolex watches and tickets for sale

A 23-year-old woman claimed to have Rolex watches and event tickets for sale -- but did not fulfil her end of the bargain after receiving payment from interested buyers.

According to Lianhe Zaobao, Feng Simin was sentenced to 13 months in jail after pleading guilty to 32 counts of cheating on Jan 18, 2019.

Feng had listed items such as JJ Lin concert tickets, F1 tickets, National Day Parade tickets, Rolex watches and gaming consoles for sale on Carousell.

She then requested buyers to transfer payment into her back account first, but failed to honour the transactions.

Two buyers who purchased JJ Lin concert tickets said that they received an envelope containing only a piece of blank paper from Feng.

After receiving complaints from users, Carousell suspended Feng's account.

However, Feng created a new account and continued with her web of deception.

Court documents showed that 28 victims had lodged police reports from July 2017 to October 2018, informing that they had been scammed by Feng, who was unemployed during that period of time.

The victims lost $5,855 in total.

Despite being charged in court on August 17 last year, Feng continued to defraud victims while out on bail.

During her sentencing, Feng said that she regretted her actions, which were committed in a moment of folly, and had learnt her lesson.
