If you’ve taken your IPPT before, you’ll never miss the posters peppered around the test area: if I remember correctly, it indicated that cheating is a very serious offence and offenders will be charged.

Well, it seems like what our enciks used to tell us has made it to the headline: someone tested the system and he got burned.

According to The Straits Times, Mr Lim Chun Chyi has been the mastermind of a series of IPPT cheats from 2011 to 2014. In total, it involved 93 cases, with him taking the IPPT for other NSmen 72 times (wah!?) and him “outsourcing” the other 20 cases to others. There’s no report pertaining to the one more case (coz 93 – 72 – 20 = 1?).

Apparently, Mr Lim doesn’t stay passive and wait for clients to approach him: he’ll actively solicit for his “business”.

What’s interesting is that his “clients” might not need to pay him: he “earned” from the incentive awards. Before the new IPPT system and awards kicked in from 1 September 2014, the incentives were $100 for a Pass with Incentive, $200 for a Silver and $400 for a Gold.

Lest you’re not aware, the new rates are $200, $300 and $500.

Sometimes, Mr Lim would request for an additional $50 from his “clients”.

In total, the amount came out to be $24,700.

He was finally caught in Khatib Camp after a fitness trainer recognized that he had been there a few weeks ago and did some internal searches.

Well, to be honest, it’s just a matter of time: just think about it. Taking IPPT 72 times in four years—even if you rotate between the four FCCs, you’ll still stand out, especially when you get a Gold from the old system (the Gold running time for 2.4 km is…a little torturous for NSmen lah). In a test, usually only a few would get a Gold timing.

Mr Lim was jailed for eighteen months yesterday (20 March 2017). That’s like losing his freedom all over again, man.

Here’s the wise words from our enciks again: Don’t try to test the system.
