A 19-year-old teenager managed to con about 50 people in Hong Kong into believing that he was a pilot with Singapore Airlines before taking advantage of them. The boy who carried fake ID identifying him as a “First Officer” – a co-pilot who is second-in-command of an aircraft – was eventually caught and exposed after he molested a 15-year-old girl.

The Chinese daily reported that the teen lured his victims to meet him through a WhatsApp group. One woman claimed that the boy, who remains unnamed due to ongoing police investigations, stayed at her place and refused to move out.

Eventually, the young man met a 15-year-old girl at a cafe at Hong Kong after conning her about his identity prior to the meeting. At the meeting, he claimed that his mobile phone had exhausted it’s battery life and that he needed to retrieve his portable charger from the airport.

The girl took a bus with him to the airport where he grabbed her breasts. The teenager refused to stop groping the girl even when she struggled and eventually quit when the girl scolded him loudly on the bus.

The girl subsequently made a police report whereupon the teenager was arrested.

Singapore Airlines has since clarified that the “teen pilot” is not one of its staff.
