According to him, his PoS machine was compromised, making it easier to perform the fraud without Personal Identification Number (PIN).

He said:

“I mistakenly used the customer’s card to buy things from a company. I thought it was my card.

“The manager later found the card with me, and I was sacked immediately.

“They asked me how I knew the customer’s PIN; I said I used my PIN. They brought other POS, and a policeman also tried his ATM card. The transaction was successful.

“I used the customer’s card five times.”
