SingPost postman stealing credit cards

Should you be applying for a new credit card, or expecting a replacement credit card, do check the mail when you receive to verify that the mail had not been tempered with. It seem credit card theft can even start from the post office (although this is rare or seldom). So becareful lest you rack up big bills from your credit cards.
SINGAPORE: A former postman, who was the mastermind behind a plan to steal credit cards from two Singapore Post regional bases, was sentenced on Friday to 13 months' jail.
The mastermind, who resigned from SingPost last September, had made friends with his two accomplices.
Mohd Feerdauz and Mohd Hud stole seven letters containing credit cards.
Mohd Fauzee then made plans for the credit cards to be used to make purchases across the Causeway.
The trio had planned to re—sell the items they had bought and share the proceeds.
The court heard that five of the cards were used for transactions totalling more than S$17,000.
They were caught after a bank manager lodged a report about some unauthorised transactions made on credit cards that his customers did not receive.
