Second case of mooching in Singapore

Just this past week, another case of mooching was tried in court. I talked about the earlier case in an earlier posting. Unlike the previous case where the guy mooched in order to feed his gaming addiction, this guy, Lin Zhenghuang mooched and posted a bomb hoax as  he was feeling bored and restless. The 21-year-old had posted that there was a bomb attack at Toa Payoh interchange. For the bomb hoax, he can face a jail term of up to 7 years and a fine of S$50000. For mooching, he can face up to 3 years jail and fined up to S$10000.

The two cases so far should send a pretty clear warning to those out there who are mooching or intend to mooch. Given the numerous free Wi-Fi hotspots that we have around, there’s little reason for someone to mooch anymore.
