The Casino Dragon | Chia Teck Leng | 2004 | 1/2

In 1994, Chia Teck Leng, a financial controller in Swire Pacific Offshore services would have entered a casino for the first time.

10 years later, he would become the 2nd biggest casino gambler in the world, and a criminal who swindled banks of a staggering $117 million dollars to fund his addiction.

This heinous crime would have been Singapore's largest case of commercial fraud at that time, with the 2nd biggest being 3 times less in value at 35 million, committed by Teo Cheng Kiat a supervisor in SIA 4 years ago.

In Ep 2. we'll learn how Chia Teck Leng siphoned $117 million, the excessive life he led, and how it all came crashing down.
