Seven postmen among 13 held for credit card fraud

KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 —Police have detained 13 people, including seven postmen, in connection with credit card interception and fraud totalling about RM1 million. The suspects, aged between 25 and 40, were arrested at separated locations in the Klang Valley between April 1 and 9. A multi-purpose vehicle, mobile phones and envelopes containing credit cards were seized from the suspects. Three of the suspects are women. Kuala Lumpur police deputy chief Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh said the suspects are believed to have been involved in these activities since 2009. “Our investigations revealed that a syndicate used postmen to intercept the credit cards of victims for a fee of between RM50 and RM100 for each successful interception,” said Amar. He said the syndicate would remove the chip from the original credit card and insert it into a fake one. A fake chip would be fixed into the original card before it was returned to the owner by post, he said. The seven postmen have been sacked. Pos Malaysia Bhd chief executive officer and group managing director Datuk Syed Faisal Albar said the company was giving its full co-operation to the police in their investigations.
