An ice-cream van driver fooled two bank managers into believing she was a high-flying doctor with US$3 million (HK$23.2 million) to invest. Eastern magistrate Garry Tallentire told Yung York-mui, 49, that she lived in a 'fantasy world'. Yung admitted obtaining a pecuniary advantage by pretending to be a doctor at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, earning $480,000 a year, when she applied for a credit card. The court heard Yung had six similar convictions and was staying at a hostel run by the Society for the Rehabilitation of Offenders a month before committing the offence. 'You have a long history of committing this type of offence. It is as though you live in a fantasy world,' Mr Tallentire said. The court heard that Yung changed her name in 1994 from Yung Siu-kuen to match that of a doctor she knew had worked at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. On September 6 last year, Yung went into the Queen's Road East branch of the International Bank of Asia and told the branch's senior manager, Li King-oi, that she had recently returned from Hawaii and had US$3 million to invest. Ms Li arranged for the investment department manager to meet Yung three days later. She asked Yung for her business card, but was told that her clinic in Wan Chai was being decorated. Yung spoke at length of her work experience in the United States and fooled Ms Li into giving her a pre-approved Gold Visa Card application form without providing proof of income. Yung obtained the card and used it to run up a bill of $148,000 in less than two months. She was traced when the bills were not settled. When arrested, Yung admitted the offence but maintained she was a nurse. Mr Tallentire remanded her in custody until May 21 for reports.
