Wanted by the police, fraud offender Tsai Han-ting jumped from five stories up while fleeing
arrest and broke his legs, leaving him in a wheelchair. He then took advantage of people’s sympathy by lying to them about having no money to return home, by which he successfully scammed two people for NT$10,000, one of whom was even kind enough to push Tsai’s wheelchair to the post office and withdraw money to give him. The New Taipei District Court sentenced Tsai to six months in prison for fraud, with leave to appeal.
According to police investigations, Tsai had previously fractured his leg while attempting to escape arrest and has recently used a wheelchair. However, as he lacks spending money, he uses his twisted mind to swindle people while taking advantage of their compassion. [FULL STORY]
