Suspended jail sentence for rolex scam
(01-29 12:19)

A businessman has been given a nine-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, for cheating a man out of three rolex watches by claiming he could help get the man's son into a prestigious school.
Joseph Lam was convicted on two counts of obtaining property by deception. Kwun Tong Court heard that in 2011, Lam told the victim he could get a recommendation letter for the boy in return for donating the watches to an auction organized by the alumni association of the Diocesan Boys' School. But there was no such auction.
Lam said he would appeal. --RTHK
