Back in 2008, Jacky Wu bought half the stock of LED company Alpha Photonitek Corp (APC) for NT$30 million, and became chairman of the board. But prosecutors discovered that Wu and his good friend Hsu Feng-yang, chairman of Lienming Mobile Technology signed a contract in 2009.

Lienming bought 600,000 LED products from Alpha. Lienming paid NT$60 million of promissory notes in advanced. Jacky Wu took two of the notes, worth NT$40 million. He then borrowed same figure from a doctor friend. When the deadline approached, Wu wired NT$27,500,000 to Lienming. Hsu withdrew NT$20 million, keeping the rest of the promissory notes for his personal use.

But the contract got cancelled. Hsu got worried and borrowed NT$ 30 million dollars from a friend then paid it back to Lienming posing as Jacky Wu.

Wu denied any wrongdoing while under investigation last year.
