Two men, aged 17 and 25, have been arrested for a series of e-commerce scams reported in January 2022, said the Singapore Police Force in a press release on Feb. 17.
What did they do?
The 17-year-old male purportedly scammed and defrauded three victims of about S$27,000.
He had allegedly sold counterfeit bags as authentic luxury bags.
The 25-year-old, on the other hand, allegedly cheated two victims of S$300.
The victims thought they were purchasing a Play Station 5 from him, but after the payments were made, the man allegedly did not deliver the items and used the money for his personal expenses.
After follow-up investigations, the police established the men's identities and arrested them on Feb. 15.
If found guilty, they will face an imprisonment term of up to 10 years and a fine.
