Canadian arrested in Macau for trying to defraud entertainment company out of US$284 million

A Canadian citizen was arrested in Macau on Friday for trying to defraud an entertainment company in the city out of US$284 million, according to local media report. The man, surnamed Leao, 61, is accused of using fake papers to try and transfer the money from the firm’s bank to an account in Hong Kong, Macau Daily reported on Sunday. A clerk, however, refused the request after becoming suspicious when the signature on the documents Leao provided as authorisation for the transaction failed to match the one the bank had on record.
