Credit card numbers stolen from CityLink

Credit card numbers belonging to CityLink motorway customers in Melbourne may have been posted on the Internet.

A Melbourne man arrested almost a year ago for using the credit cards of CityLink customers to buy goods showed Melbourne’s Herald Sun a list of 512,000 credit card numbers he said were from the same program he used to fraudulently buy goods worth $10,000.

Operator Transurban said last night the company had reviewed its internal security since it was revealed last week that two Colac men allegedly used the credit card details of CityLink customers to go on a spending spree.

After monitoring external access points last weekend, a spokeswoman confirmed no unusual activity had been detected. She was “confident customer credit card details were not being downloaded from our website”.

A former employee of Citylink was last night questioned over the misuse of the program. He was released and will be charged on summons with theft of credit card numbers from Citylink's computer system.

Two men faced Geelong Magistrates' Court after allegedly being caught last week with 12,000 credit card numbers of Transurban CityLink customers.
