3rd Malaysian national charged with fraud offences

| 24/10/2013

(CNS): Police from the Financial Crimes unit have charged a 37-year-old Malaysian national who was arrested last Saturday with one count of obtaining a money transfer by deception, and one count of attempting to obtain a money transfer by deception. It is anticipated that he will appear in court today, Thursday 24 October but the cash cops have not yet stated if they believe the man who is the third Malaysian charged for deception offences this month is part of a fraud ring. In the wake of his arrest officers said it was too early to confirm if he was connected to the two men arrested for jewel and credit card fraud in downtown George Town on 5 October.

This third man was arrested after police received information that he had attempted to obtain high value goods from a number of retail premises in the centre of George Town. Following observations in the Harbour Drive area, he was detained after a short foot chase. In this case police did not say exactly what he had attempted to acquire or how.

The two other men from Malaysia however had a large number of credit cards and jewellery valued at around US $200,000 on them when arrested which was seized by police. The men aged 30 and 50 were also charged with obtaining a money transfer by deception and attempting to obtain a money transfer by deception.
