Between July 2019 to November 2020, she allegedly submitted 11 edited invoices to Prudential, to facilitate accident injury claims for her clients. She knew that her clients’ claims were likely to be rejected by Prudential. As such, she submitted edited invoices with false details of the circumstances of her clients’ accidents to substantiate their claims, and deceived Prudential into disbursing a total of $3,287.82.

Huang was sentenced to six weeks’ imprisonment following her conviction on four counts of cheating under Section 417 of the Penal Code, with seven other charges taken into consideration for the purpose of sentencing. The offence of cheating under Section 417 of the Penal Code carries an imprisonment term of up to three years.

The Police have zero tolerance towards such criminal acts and will not hesitate to take action against those who blatantly disregard the law, and have also referred Huang to the Monetary Authority of Singapore for regulatory actions to be taken against her.
