A court in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday sentenced a Malaysian man to three years in jail for using fake credit cards.
The man, For Zheng Yi, 31, was arrested last October after he tried to buy a flight ticket to Taiwan at a travel agent in HCMC's District 1.
All of his cards were declined. The staff became suspicious and called the police.
Investigation found he entered Vietnam with 30 fraudulent credit cards.
He has earlier used some of the cards to successfully buy phone cards and pay a hotel bill of more than VND5.5 million (US$246).
