Korean Father and Son Team Arrested for $7M Scam

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:07 pm

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: On 14 September 2018, two men from South Korea appeared before the Phnom Penh court on charges of fraud filed by Jin Zhehong, 44-year-old male, a Chinese businessman representing Shenyang Aiweiou Health Products Co.
The Korean father and son team, CHO SO IN, 29-years-old and CHO SAMSUNG,aged 60, have been charged with fraud and theft of more than $ 7M from Chinese companies.
According to the court prosecutors, the suit filed by a Chinese company against the two Koreans alleges fraud involving car purchases amounting to $292,045 in 2016, and the theft of $ 7,205,882 in 2017 using falsified public documents.
After the theft in 2017, both suspects went back to South Korea. When they moved back to Cambodia this year, they were arrested at the request of the Chinese company, after reportedly buying a condominium and a Range Rover.
At present, both suspects are being questioned by Deputy Prosecutor Seang Sok.

You'd assume (yeah, I know) there'd be a record somewhere of who that plate belonged to, and that a wrist could be slapped if anybody cared.

Ah, it refreshing to see a father and son spending time together. Or rather doing time together in this case.

Beggars belief that after having successfully scammed $7mill they came back. Surely not the brightest move and clearly the greed got the better of them.

If I were them, I'd certainly be interested in any buyers remorse clauses.
