Kasendran Marimuthu, known as Darren worked at a hotel where my boss was staying in Bloemfontein. He processed a dinner payment for my boss and then captured our companies credit card details and used it at the Coobah bar in Bloemgate to pay for over R2500 worth of alcohol.
He must have been working with someone at Coobah as they let him process this massive amount via a manual transaction on the credit card machine. Why would a restaurant allow manual transactions?? It is a bank pre requisite that the card must be present. There are supervisor codes needed when manual transactions are performed and they just let him??
His fraudulent activities caused the hotel he worked for to lose nearly R10,000. There was also another corporate credit cards details used for payment on a different night so it shows that someone at Choobah must be involved. A case of fraud was opened at the Park Street Police Station but the case is taking forever. Kasendran, better known as Darren fled to Durban to hide.
Do not thrust this man! According to the hotel he lives in Durban but also lived in Kimberley before he moved to Bloemfontein.
