Malaysian detained in India over credit card scam

A Malaysian cook’s shopping spree using fake credit cards to purchase electronic items came to an end after he was nabbed by the city’s police following a tip-off last week.

The 24-year-old suspect, who arrived in Bangalore via Chennai on July 24, was believed to have obtained seven international cards from another person, whom police have yet to identify.

Before his arrest the suspect had purchased items worth nearly RM15,000 in India’s IT capital.

“He was arrested after a senior official of Citibank informed the police. The accused had bought a laptop and watches from stores in Forum and Lifestyle.

“During investigations, he confessed to have created fake credit cards of several leading banks by using the photo copies of the passport belonging to a Chinese national Lee Ken Xiang, along with another associate, Ali,” Ashoknagar police inspector A.B. Devaih told Bernama.
Using the suspect’s mobile phone, police are now probing whether he was linked to an international credit card syndicate operating in India, which is fast becoming a target for the crime.

“Having seized a mobile from him we are investigating if there is a local nexus and at the same time, we can’t rule out of foreign element in this gang,” said Devaih.

Police are also investigating how the suspect, who hails from Kuala Lumpur, was in possession of two passports in different names.
