    "His wife, Neo Kuon Huay, and ex-company director Jackie Hoo Choon Cheat were similarly convicted. "

    His accomplice's name forewarned you.

    Justice is served!

    The head of the now—defunct multi—level marketing firm, Sunshine Empire, 49—year old Phang Wah has been sentenced to nine years’ jail and fined $60,000.
    He was convicted earlier this month on July 16 of several offences, including running a fraudulent trading company and falsifying accounts.
    Phang’s 46—year—old wife, Neo Kuon Huay was also fined $60,000 for her involvement in what is believed to be the biggest Ponzi—like scheme in Singapore. Not sure got jail sentence or not.

    The ex—company director, 29—year old Jackie Hoo Choon Cheat was sentenced to seven years’ jail.
    always the Light, .... always.

    i am more interested of the other news in your link :

    In a separate case, a taxi driver pleaded guilty to molesting a female passenger.

    52-year-old Francis Ngien Tai Ho, picked her up at around 3am on 10 August 2009.

    He then invited the 25-year-old woman to sit in the front passenger seat after she complained the rear seat was uncomfortable.

    The woman accepted the invitation.

    Ngien asked to shake her hand when they reached her destination and she extended it to him.

    But instead of giving her a handshake, the TransCab driver planted a kiss on it.

    She lodged a police report the next day. - CNA/vm

    this conjob got good ROI $20 Million per year of jail. Can you earn $20 Million per year?
    assume it is not james phang wah.
    assume it is (fictitious - lee ah beng) 20 years old.
    he spends 1½ years bluffing people and getting them to part with money totalling $180 Million.
    lee ah beng then stashes away all this money in Swiss bank accounts or elsewhere
    he is sent to jail for 9 years and fined $60,000.
    like the Cambodian torturer Duch, he can even claim to be born-again-believer-in-whatever-religion...


    when he is 29 years old he is out and can start to enjoy life.
    actually earlier maybe minus 4 years for good behavior.
    so out by age 25.
    and he still has $180 Million minus $60,000 to spend from that time onwards.....
    during the time he is in jail, he need not spend time doing NS, ICT, IPPT, BCTC....

    lee ah beng can even study to get paper qualifications while in jail

    when he is out, he can write a book about his experiences and sign a multi million dollar book deal with publishers.
    like nick leeson.

    Well, golden rule, if you do not understand how a company makes $$, do not invest.

    The Profitable Group is another case brewing...
    How do you make profit from Land parcel when you are not developing it...

    When greed gets the better of common sense, then prepare to lose the $$.

    Seems like no jail term for the wife ?

    I still remember the days when die-hard agents will defend James Phang against all criticism. That was in 2007... now finally the truth had been seen. But 9 years is just too short

    I'm disappointed that he only received 9 yrs jail and a fine of $60k. He probably has millions slashed away to be enjoyed when released.

    Ya lor, if you really want to spend your $$ on MLM, read up on the company first. Do they produce high technology products backed by science? What about professional financial reviews? Do the products justify the price you pay? Will you be affected if the company close down?
