Zen Employee Arrested Over Fraud
By: MarkJ - 10 March, 2005 (5:17 PM)

One of UK ISP Zen Internet's staff has been arrested on suspicion of using customer credit card details to buy and resell an online gaming package/service over eBay:

No-one from Rochdale-based Zen Internet was available for comment. In a statement the ISP told us: "We can confirm that an incident has occurred. The matter is in the hands of the police and Zen is co-operating with their investigations. Due to legal reasons we are unable to comment on this any further."

A police spokeswoman told us: "A 23-year-old man from Rochdale was arrested on Tuesday 8 March 2005 on suspicion of employee fraud after police in Rochdale received allegations that an employee of a company in Rochdale had allegedly been using credit card details fraudulently. The man has been bailed until 27 May 2005 pending further enquiries."

The news is unlikely to inspire confidence at a time when many are already paranoid enough about online security. More @ The Register.
