Student on fraud charge

A student was arrested on a flight to Belfast after she tried to use a credit card linked to an alleged £12,000 fraud the High Court heard.

Pharmacy student Temitayo Joseph (24) was arrested after trying to buy goods on board the flight from London to Belfast.

The Nigerian national, of Brackenwood Close, Dublin, faces a charge of fraud by false representation over the alleged offence on October 31.

A prosecuting lawyer told the court Joseph was detained when her details did not match those on the card after she tried to buy items worth £208. He claimed the card was used in £12,000 worth of fraudulent purchases in Dublin.

The bail application was adjourned.
