SINGAPORE - A bartender sold credit card details to his alleged accomplice who used them to make unauthorised online top-ups on numerous EZ-link cards, a court heard.
After topping up the Ez-link card, the alleged accomplice would obtain refunds at various Ez-Link ticketing counters. He made sure that the maximum top-up he performed on any card was $50, as no particulars would be required for the refund for this amount or less.
The court heard that the details of 28 customers' credit cards at Kazbat@Cuppage were compromised over two months in 2010. The total amount of losses involved in 267 charges was $12,610.
On Friday, Mohamed Sufian Mohamed Sabri was sentenced to six months' jail on each of 24 charges of computer misuse he pleaded guilty to last Friday.
