Police in Hanoi Sunday arrested a Malaysian man for allegedly using fraudulent cards to buy iPhones.


According to initial information, Koay Keng Chen, 22, was arrested when he was attempting to buy five units of iPhone 4 worth over VND85 million (US$4,126) from at a shop in Dong Da District along with another foreigner.


When the shop’s assistants found that the cards were fraudulent, the duo ran away, but Chen was nabbed by the police soon after.


Chen reportedly told the police that he had, on Wednesday (May 6), also bought two iPhones worth VND35 million from another shop using similar cards.


Police found two visas to Vietnam and 14 cards, all under a Chinese name, in Chen’s hotel room in Hoan Kiem District.


The other suspect’s identity is still unknown.


The case is being investigated further, police said.
