  1. The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) imposes a 5-year prohibition on two ex-representatives of financial advisory firms in connection to cheating offences.
  2. The ban on the duo, who had submitted a fraudulent injury claim, stands as a stern reminder of MAS’s zero-tolerance stance on any form of financial fraud.
  3. A deep dive into the case will shed light on the modus operandi and implications of such fraudulent activities in the financial sector.



A cautionary tale for those who tread in the often complex world of financial advisory.

This sums up the case of Ms Quek Puay Yi, Patricia, and Ms Huang Hsin Tian Silver.

Once representatives of AIA Singapore Private Limited and Professional Investment Advisory Services Pte Ltd (PIAS) respectively, they now face a five-year prohibition from MAS.

A Closer Look at The Case

Everyone loves a good mystery.

But there’s nothing enchanting about this.

Why? you might ask.

Because it’s a classic tale of deception.

These ladies teamed up and hatched a plan.

They submitted a bogus insurance claim to Manulife worth $1,128.57, anticipating a payout for a leg injury Ms Quek sustained.

The catch? The accident happened before Ms Quek bought the policy.

The Aftermath

This scam was detected.

There was no payout.

For their actions, they received convictions for cheating.

The prohibition orders laid down bear testimony to the level of distrust MAS places in Ms Quek and Ms Huang.

It doubts their integrity to do their jobs honestly.

And really, can you blame them?

Similar Stories, Different Faces

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard such tales.

Financial fraud investigation uncovers similar cases all too often.

Take for instance Zeng Xuan, a previous representative of the Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation.

She too faced a ban following her conviction for fraud and dishonesty.

Her game? She lied to a client claiming that premiums for a pre-existing condition had been waived.

The truth? She knew the insurer didn’t agree.

Another tale involves Ong Ka Yong, a former financial advisor who cheated 25 people off $1.3 million using fake investment opportunities.

The message is loud and clear.

Deceptive finance advice does not go unnoticed.

Or unpunished.

Stepping on Shaky Ground

Then there’s the question of integrity.

Even if these financial advisors didn’t directly defraud the customer, their actions cast doubt on their reliability.

The client is left wondering, “Can I trust this advisor with my money?”

Stay Alert and Informed

To avoid falling prey to fraudulent financial advisors, you need to be vigilant.

First, check if the financial advisor or insurance agent you are dealing with is recognised by MAS.

Then, find out if they are banned.

Remember, in this world of investment scams and ponzi schemes, it is better to be safe than sorry.

No one is immune from becoming the next victim of financial malpractice.

The question now is, can you uncover the indicators of financial advisor fraud before it’s too late?
