She submitted a total of 63 MCs to CNB, but an officer who was arranging the MCs became suspicious as some appeared to be forged.Further checks revealed a total of 18 MCs between Jan 15 and June 22 last year had indeed been forged.Noorfadilah admitted to forging these MCs by either scanning the original MC and saving and editing it on a computer, or by downloading MC templates online and then editing them.

She did so because she did not have enough money to see a doctor and did not want to report for the urine tests.She also admitted to consuming methamphetamine, which she referred to as sejuk, the street name for the drug that is also known as Ice. For each charge of forgery for the purpose of cheating, she could have been jailed up to 10 years and fined.
