    Credit card scam bust

    Some good news on a credit card scam syndicate bust, but reading further into the story, I'm blown away by the sheer scale of the problem.
    When Kizito Ojoni and George Adesanya appear in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court today (Monday), the crime on the charge sheet will only read "fraud".

    But investigators and prosecutors are hoping to convince the court that the pair's crimes are far more serious and that they are at the very top of a very complex international syndicate, believed to have defrauded banks worldwide of tens of millions of rands.

    Prosecutors were expected to argue that when Ojoni - believed to be the brains behind the operation - was busted a month ago, he was already under correctional supervision for a separate fraud charge.

    Ojoni and Adesanya were arrested on November 12 at storage warehouse in Honeydew, north-west of Johannesburg, where they were allegedly producing fake credit cards.

    Investigators who arrested the pair red-handed described their operation as highly professional and the storage room where they worked from as a credit card factory.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Thank goodness I'm so deep in debt, they'll have to pay the card first before they can swipe it again.
