He had cheated customers of My Digital Lock into transferring $24,569 to him via bank transfer and cash, according to The Straits Times.

It was previously reported that he had duped a female customer back into thinking that she was making payment to My Digital Lock, and she transferred $6,153 to an account that Ow provided.

She had thought that she was making payment for a digital lock, a bed frame, a mattress and pillows.

The founder of the firm, Ronn Teo, said that Ow had given his own PayNow account to the customers, changing his account name to My Digital Lock Pte Ltd.
