There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to the type of employee companies are looking to hire as it varies from industry to industry. However, someone with a degree is often going to have the upper hand over the person who doesn’t have it.
With that in mind, Chin Ming Lik decided to create his own fate. The 49-year-old man skipped all the steps into having a great career and chose to forge his way to success in his own crooked way.
Chin only had a primary school qualification, but he didn’t let that get in the way. In fact, he easily hopped from company to company for the past several years, earning a lucrative salary.
No, it wasn’t because of his amazing skills that he got to earn even as much as SGD 9,000.00 (approx USD 6,640.00) a month at one time. The truth is that Chin had been faking his documents to qualify for higher positions.
He started forging fake documents as early as 2014 when he first heard about how civil engineering is a lucrative career. He found two certificates belonging to other people from previous jobs and overlaid pieces of paper filled with his information over these certificates and photocopied them to forge the documents.
On his resume, Chin claimed that he had 16 years of experience and had previously worked for construction companies in Singapore.
If employers would request for original documents, Chin already had a ready response. He made a statutory declaration on September 2015 saying that he had misplaced over ten original certificates when moving houses so he couldn’t comply.
Since Chin didn’t really know anything about civil engineering, he would hop from one company to another before the people around him would suspect anything. He worked at 38 companies and never held any position longer than three months from 2013 to 2017.
His lies finally caught up to him when a company sent his NUS degree scroll to the university for authentication. No match was found on the database, and the police were notified.
Police stopped Chin on April 2017 at Woodlands Checkpoint. Although he pleaded guilty for forging the documents, a thorough investigation revealed that it’s not the only cri me he committed.
Chin had been driving four different cars without a valid license for the past ten years, and he also shoplifted while out on court bail on September 2017.
His defense lawyer said that Chin was “deeply remorseful for his actions.” He was sentenced to two years and 11 months in jail. He was also fined SGD 1,600.00 (approx. USD 1,180.00).
