A man was jailed for eight months yesterday for posing as a Queen Mary Hospital doctor to justify 'borrowing' HK$4,200 from a stranger. Lao Tam, 65, pleaded guilty in Eastern Court to obtaining property by deception. He told a woman he met in Central that he had forgotten his wallet and needed the money to help students return to Cheung Chau after an exam at City Hall. He left a fake mobile phone number.
