Man given probation for mobile phone fraud

AN 18-YEAR-OLD man who frequently obtained three mobile phone plans which racked up a bill of almost $5000 has been placed on probation.

Anthony Kevin Punch pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday to eight charges including stealing and fraud.

The court heard Punch who had the same name as his victim, used his own driver's licence and Medicare card to set up the Telstra plans under another man's account, before selling the mobiles to another person for about $400.

Magistrate Deb Vasta placed him on 12 months' probation.
