A 21-year-old man working as an Ikea delivery driver is accused of copying customers' bank card numbers and using their details to fund a shopping spree worth hundreds of thousands of kronor.

He is also suspected of selling the numbers to other criminals. The man has been charged, reported Sydsvenskan, but he blames the crime on 'unknown men' who forced him to acquire the numbers.

The 21-year-old, who has been under investigation for over a year, is thought to be part of a network of around 50 card fraudsters in the Malmö area who have embezzled over four million kronor.
