A delivery driver, 52, sent a prospective bride home to Vietnam after she lived with him for a week.
Then he demanded the $6,800 he paid the matchmaking agency.
The matchmaker, Mr Mark Lin (above), 48, refused, claiming that the man, known only as Mr Tan, had slept with the 23-year-old woman.
Mr Tan denied having sex with her and their dispute went before the Small Claims Tribunal last September.
Last Friday, a judge ruled in Mr Lin’s favour, saying he did not have to refund Mr Tan.
