A woman has been sentenced to eight years and six months in jail for fraud. She allegedly swindled over MOP2 million from 14 people and four employment agencies in Nepal by acting as an employment agent in Macau, cheating them of commission fees, according to Chinese media outlet Macau Daily.
The case indicated that since September 2009, the 45-year-old woman had lied to people from mainland China, the Philippines and Nepal, claiming she could arrange for them to work at local hotels or other places, swindling service charges and money from them for document procedures.
The ruling was announced by the Court of First Instance in tandem with a verdict on the woman’s partner who used to be a clerk in the Public Prosecutor’s Office. The man, aged 41, acted as a middleman and fed the victims with fake information. He was sentenced to six years behind bars.
