Detectives from the London Met Police said Ashley Dominic Singh, 34 , stole numerous victim’s credit cards and mobile phone SIM cards to facilitate bank accounts takeovers.

Once accessed, fraudulent transactions – totaling £227,000  (around €260,000) – were made on high value goods such as jewellery, designer labels and electronic goods.

Singh and his accomplice, Tony Clarke, 30 were identified as suspects following a police investigation.
