(ii) Julie signed a promissory note on behalf of JJ Greens Pte Ltd issued to Qian Qian Pte Ltd in return for $100,000; this money was used to purchase a commercial tractor. Julie did not put the company’s name on the promissory note.
Unfortunately, the business did not do well and by October 2019, the company was unable to make payments under the agreements above.
