Court says property agent who sued couple for $316k had misled them, throws out her case.
SINGAPORE - A property agent who misled a married couple into handing her a $316,000 cheque to demonstrate interest in a Balmoral Road apartment, and failed to disclose she was the owner, has lost her lawsuit to claim the money.
A High Court judge found Ong Keh Choo, who has 35 years' experience, to be "untrustworthy" and "opportunistic".
Ms Ong had sued American research scientist Paul Huntington Bernando and his wife, Vietnamese medical concierge Tran Hong Hanh, for cancelling the cheque after they found out about her non-disclosure.
