A POSTMAN stole a credit card from a registered letter at a post office inside the Eastern Court building and used it to withdraw cash, a magistrate heard. Tsoi Tze-kit, 31, admitted to six charges of theft before Magistrate Yung Yiu-wing at Eastern Court yesterday. Tsoi's defence solicitor, Suen Kam-hee, told the court Tsoi had worked as a 'faithful and diligent' postman for 13 years. Mr Suen said Tsoi committed the offences out of financial stress because he was the sole supporter of his family. 'Both parents suffered from heart disease and this incurred a lot of medical expenses,' Mr Suen told the court. He said that Tsoi was willing to repay the stolen money. Crown prosecutor Annie Wong told the court the cardholder, Wong Wing-sheung, was informed by Citibank in July that her Classic Visa card would be upgraded to a Gold Card which would be delivered to her. A month later Ms Wong had not received her card and made an inquiry. The bank told her the card and the personal identification number had been delivered and that a total of $26,000 had been withdrawn. A report was made to the police. Tsoi was identified by his senior officer on a Citibank videotape film of customers withdrawing money from its automatic teller machine in Causeway Bay, the court heard. Tsoi was arrested by police at the Eastern Delivery Office in September. Magistrate Yung Yiu-wing adjourned the case until October 23 for background reports. Tsoi was remanded in custody.
