Five men will appear in Eastern Court today charged with theft and forgery in connection with an alleged $1.2 million scam at a modelling agency in Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mongkok. A total of 88 would-be models were allegedly tricked by the company into paying tens of thousands of dollars in return for jobs that never materialised.
