17 year old babe Yap Siew Ting sentenced to 2 years probation for extortion

Posted by temasektimes on June 28, 2012

A 17 year old girl Yap Siew Ting who was involved in a nude video scam has been sentenced to 2 years supervised probation for extortion.

She has been ordered by the court to serve 130 hours of community service. Her mother also has to post a bond of S$5,000 to ensure her good behaviour.

Yap allegedly stripped in front of a webcam to entice unsuspecting men to do so as well, one of whom is a son of a medical doctor who was extorted a total of $97,000 as reported initially over a period of nine months under the threat that the footage of his naked body would be circulated online if he did not pay up.

The man reportedly paid $97,350 via 89 fund transfers to different POSB savings accounts. However, Yap remained unsatisfied and continued to extort more money from him, eventually forcing him to lodge a police report.

Yap was charged along with her boyfriend, 21-year-old Soh Zhi Ren Alexander, earlier this year for the online extortion scam.

In mitigation, Yap said she was ‘coerced’ by her boyfriend to partake in the scam as she was afraid of losing him. Soh’s case is still pending.

19 year old girl Wong Li Ya charged for pimping two Singaporean women for prostitution

Posted by temasektimes on March 21, 2012

After 17 year old Singaporean girl Yap Siew Ting made the headlines a month ago for extorting money from unsuspecting men in an internet love scam, another young Singaporean girl found herself in trouble with the law over vice-related crimes.

19 year old Wong Li Ya was charged in court today for allegedly procuring two women aged 24 and 20 years for prostitution on Jan 20 last year and March 2010 respectively together with her boyfriend 29 year old Chang Shi Chang like Yap who committed the offence together with her boyfriend Soh Zhi Ren.

Chang is accused of six more similar charges of procuring women, all believed to be Singaporeans, at Bugis Junction, Suntec City, Loyang and Ang Mo Kio in 2010.

It is not  known if the ‘deal’ was completed. According to some rumors circulating on a notorious sex forum in Singapore, the couple has been operating an online sex blogshop offering freelance Singaporean students and women for sex and earning ‘commission’ off them.

Under the Women Charter in Singapore, it is illegal for anybody to act as a pimp for women to solicit sexual services. However it is perfectly legal for a woman to offer whatever ‘services’ she has at her own initiative.

17 year old Yap Siew Ting now accused of extorting $150,000 from NTU student Ng Yong Cheng in internet love scam

Posted by temasektimes on March 14, 2012

17 year old Yap Siew Ting, who made the headlines last week after being charged for extorting money from a 22 year old NTU student Ng Yong Cheng, is now accused of extorting  a shocking $150,000 from him together with her boyfriend Alexander Soh Zhi Ren.

The duo has been remanded at Ang Mo Kio police station for almost a month to assist in the police investigations.

Yap allegedly stripped in front of a webcam to entice unsuspecting men to do so as well, one of whom is Ng Yong Cheng, the son of a medical doctor who was extorted a total of $97,000 as reported initially over a period of nine months under the threat that the footage of his naked body would be circulated online if he did not pay up.

Besides Ng, five other men have come forward to accuse Yap of using the same trick to trick them into stripping naked unsuspectingly in front of a webcam. Yap would strip herself first to seduce the men into doing so and then used the footage to extort them into paying her.

The figure has been increased to $150,000 in an amended charge tendered by the prosecution on Wednesday.

According to media reports, Yap was born to a single mother from Indonesia and lived with her in a 3-room flat in Marsiling. Yap and her boyfriend are currently unemployed. If convicted, they could be jailed up to seven years and caned. However, as Yap is still a juvenile, the judge may consider probation for her.
