It was his eighth cheating case. The other seven cases were heard at two courts on Penang island earlier this week.
Kamaleshwaran A/L Chitravelu, 29, was charged with cheating Wong Hon Chong, 29, by inducing him to surrender his Proton Perdana for sale.
He was alleged to have committed the offence at 4382, Jalan Bagan Luar, here in March 2004.
He pleaded not guilty before magistrate Chiang Kian Hong.
Kamaleshwaran pleaded for leniency and told the court he would not abscond. He assured the court he would be present at his trial.
Assistant Public Prosecutor Siti Aishah Ramlan asked the magistrate to deny him bail as the accused faced several other cheating cases.
Chiang granted him RM20,000 bail with one surety.
He fixed Nov 11 2009 for the case to be mentioned.
Kamaleshwaran, who was represented by S. Narasimhan, did not post the bail.
