” Former HSBC SVP Sentenced to 10.5 Years in Jail for $5.2 Million Investment Scam “

The former SVP of HSBC, Emeline Tang had offered higher fixed deposits rates and investment plans in the range of 3% to 4% at “HSBC” and persuaded victims to provide cash cheques or cash to speed up the process. She had also prepared policy booklets bearing the HSBC bank’s logo. The fraud was uncovered when the victims (clients) contacted HSBC to withdraw their funds.

She had spent around $3 million to fund her gambling at Marina Bay Sands and Resort World Sentosa casinos. She has since returned over $800,000 to her victims (clients), with the amount including the “returns” of the fixed deposit and investment plans.  4 of her 5 victims are her relatives, with 4 of them being 69 years and older.
