- Singaporean Chan Xin Kai, 23, was sentenced to 24 weeks of prison time after pleading guilty to five charges that include insulting a woman's modesty, selling obscene videos and criminal intimidation.
- Chan recorded and photographed some of the sexual activities he had with at least 20 women from Tinder and more women he met in school without his partners’ consent.
- Chan later sold the videos and photos of the sex acts illegally, which ended up circulating online.
- Chan’s modus operandi involved posing as the woman in fake dating and chat app accounts and offering to sell her photos and videos to other users. He earned 160 Singapore dollars (approximately $114) from selling two sex videos featuring one of the victims to two unknown buyers.
- He also threatened to spread nude images and videos of a separate victim if she refused to reconnect and meet with him.

- “Although the accused's outrages of modesty are less intrusive because it involves feet and not private parts, it is anything but harmless,” Deputy Public Prosecutor Chong Kee En said.
- Tan pretended to work for a non-existent charity in 2017 and for Singapore’s People’s Association in 2019.
- Tan was also fined 8,000 Singaporean dollars (approximately $5,876) in 2019 after being charged with five counts of outrage of modesty. He reportedly faced two counts of the same charges back in 2014.
