A Chitungwiza man, Donald Shorai Jima (29) of Zengeza, has appeared before the Harare Magistrate, Barbara Mateko charged with unauthorised use or possession of debit cards.
It is alleged that the accused and his accomplices who are still at large cloned bank debit cards belonging to Amanda Zietsman, John Clark and Valentine Vincent Oldfiel (CABS account holders) and transferred a total of $69 000.
They are argued to have used the money to buy expensive wines, beer and agricultural inputs.
Jima and his accomplices are reported to have transferred the stolen money into their fraudulent Ecocash Accounts. Jima was arrested on April 26 after he went to Karimbika’s Hardware with printouts from EcoCash to confirm that he had not received the $500 which was still outstanding.
The State said in all the transactions, nothing was recovered.
