Man threatened GF with sex video after spending spree: 'I will make you more famous than porn star'

A man threatened to release a sex video of his girlfriend in order to prevent her from reporting him after he went on a $1,000 shopping spree with a lost debit card that she had found.

The girlfriend of 40-year-old Thomas Chua Poh Heng found a lost debit card at an ATM at Vista Point Shopping Centre on Apr 26 last year, reported The Straits Times.

Chua took the card after she returned to the car where he was waiting and told him what she had found.

She had intended to hand it to the bank, but Chua told her that the card could be used.

That night, Chua spent about $1,070 on liquor at two pubs.

Chua then threatened his girlfriend the next day to not report him.

"If you ever report or leak anything about me I will make sure you will be super famous even more than a porn star or any person," he said to his girlfriend via WhatsApp messages, before sending her a 1min47s video of himself and her having sex.

According to Deputy Public Prosecutor Huang Jiahui, the video was made a few days earlier with the consent of the girl. She is clearly visible in the video.

On the night she received the WhatsApp messages, the girl lodged a police report.

For his offence, Chua was sentenced to 18 months' jail on Tuesday (Sep 11) after pleading guilty to one charge of criminal intimidation, two of cheating and one of dishonest misappropriation.

This was not the first time he had fallen foul with the law.

Chua was also caught for shoplifting at Mustafa Centre in Jun 2017, where he stole a 100ml bottle of Must de Cartier perfume worth $98 and tried to flee when he was caught by a security officer.

He then stopped and offered to pay for the perfume when chased by security personnel.

Following the incident, Singapore Airlines clarified that Chua was not an employee of the company, amidst rumours that he worked there.

Chua also shoplifted a pair of underwear from Spa BSfit at Festive Hotel in Sentosa in Dec 2017.

It was also earlier reported on Stomp that Chua had caused some controversy online for criticising a Traffic Police officer who was killed on patrol in a Facebook post.

For each count of cheating and dishonestly inducing a delivery of property, Chua could have been fined and jailed up to 10 years.
