A Canadian teenager on vacation in Australia has been charged with fraud after allegedly skimming a man’s credit card details to book accommodation at a resort in Queensland.

The fraud came to light after a New South Wales man noticed discrepancies on his credit card statement, including an accommodation booking for a resort on a popular street.

The man told the hotel, who then called the police when four young men turned up on Saturday to check into the room.

The 18-year-old has been charged with multiple offences, including two counts of fraud, and is expected in court on Tuesday.
