A call centre employee has been arrested in eastern India for allegedly using the credit cards details of US customers to make online purchases.

Sulagna Ray, 23, was accused of obtaining the credit card information while selling US customers a television service as part of her job, the Times of India reported Saturday.

Ray, an aspiring fashion designer, allegedly spent 4,000 dollars using other people’s credit cards to buy an air-conditioner, microwave, cosmetics, saris, jewellery and chocolate.

The theft was discovered when a California-based firm, Syssoft Corp, complained of fraudulent purchases made through its e-commerce website, the deputy police commissioner in Kolkata, Gyanwant Singh, told the daily.
