Lim Jun Chieh's offer, of as much as $20,000 for the works, including two rounds of sex, proved too tempting for at least eight women who fell for his scam. In all, the 30-year-old cheated two women and bedded six others, including a 16-year-old girl who was promised payment of $5,000.
Most of them ended up having intercourse with him without realising that he was behind the advertisements for social escorts on the Internet.
