KUALA LUMPUR: A 32-year-old Cameroon national was jailed 40 months by the Sessions Court after he pleaded guilty to cheating a car wash worker who handed him RM38,000 believing that he could convert the money into US$60,000 on several occasions last year. 

Judge Akhtar Tahir also ordered Charley Edmond be given three strokes of the rotan and an additional 10 months' jail, which was to run concurrently, for being in Malaysia without a valid pass.
