CORNWALL – Two Quebec men have turned themselves into Cornwall police after suspected credit card fraud in the city.

Cornwall police say on five separate occasions in March and April 2013, the two men bought electronics from a local business while using credit cards.

Police say the credit card owners had no idea their cards were being used.

The suspects also tried to swipe for some other purchases but the transactions were denied, police say.

The two men in their late twenties from Montreal and Lasalle showed up at police headquarters Wednesday and were arrested.

They are facing eight counts of use of credit card data, five counts of fraud over $5,000, two counts of attempting to commit an indictable offence and one count of conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

They are being held for a bail hearing in Cornwall.
