Man remanded for lodging fake cheques

A man who is alleged to have been found with fraudulent cheques in his credit card account was remanded in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last Wednesday.

Charged with unlawfully making available a device for the commission of an offence, and conspiracy to defraud, is Danhue Cooper.

The Crown is alleging that between November 4 and 5 last year Cooper facilitated the lodgement of fraudulent cheques to his credit card account in excess of $168,000. Purchases were also made on this account.

However, in court, the attorney representing Cooper denied the allegations brought against his client and told Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey that there was no confession from him to say he was responsible.

The attorney further stated that it was the accused who alerted the bank that something had gone awry.

However, the magistrate was not satisfied with this and ordered that Cooper be remanded. He will return to court on February 24.
