Malaysian charged with deception offence

| 28/04/2014

(CNS): Police from the RCIPS Finical Crimes Unit charged a 30-year-old Malaysian national Monday with obtaining a money transfer by deception, following the man's arrest in George Town on Friday 25 April. Detectives said the charges related to an incident at a George Town establishment but gave no details of the alleged financial con or how the suspect arrived in Cayman. He was due to appear in Summary Court today. Over the last few weeks three Malaysian nationals were all jailed for 16 months in connection with the use and attempted use of cloned credit cards in various high-end local jewelry stores and local hotels. Police have not stated if this suspect is accused of a similar offence.

The three men, who are currently serving their sentences in HMP Northward, all said they had travelled to Cayman separately via Dubai last October, armed with hundreds of cloned credit cards between them. They said they were forced into the crime by loan sharks in their home country.
