THREE Tamil refugees who used credit card details skimmed in the UK to steal thousands from Australian banks have been sentenced.
All three were handed jail terms.
The global fraud scheme involved card numbers stolen in Britain being emailed to Australia and encoded onto blank Coles Myer and Crown cards, which were then used to withdraw cash at ATMs.
During the trial, the court heard more than 1500 credit and debit card details were stolen in the scheme to fleece major banks.
Victoria Police seized a computer at an Endeavour Hills address and found 27 draft emails sent from England, with PINs and matching account details stolen from people in Britain and elsewhere in Europe.
Karan Nada, 42, of Endeavour Hills, Ramesh Rasanajagam, 32, of Hallam, and Udayakumar Vivekanandan, 32, all pleaded guilty.
The group withdrew $40,000, made up 317 fake cards and tried to steal another $70,000 across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT in 2008.
Judge Roy Punshon said he was guarded about Nada's prospects of rehabilitation given he had committed similar offences before.
A card skimmer was found at his house in 2006.
He jailed Nada, an Australian citizen, for 16 months and ordered that he serve at least 10 months.
Vivekanandan's immigration status was suspended pending the outcome of the fraud case.
