Police said Wednesday they have arrested a 25-year-old Chinese man over alleged fraud using the new cashless payment service for Seven-Eleven convenience stores.

Wu Yun Si Qin is suspected of purchasing 10 cartons of e-cigarette cartridges worth 50,000 yen at a 7-Eleven outlet in Tokyo’s Nakano Ward on the afternoon of July 3 by using what is believed to be a 7pay ID and password stolen from a 45-year-old man in Nakatsugawa, Gifu Prefecture.

The suspect, a Nakano Ward resident, has admitted to the allegation, saying he was asked by an acquaintance to make the purchase, and the police suspect there is a crime group behind the case.

The payment service by Seven & i Holdings Co was hacked soon after its launch on July 1, and 808 people have lost a total of 38.61 million yen, as of the end of last month, after their IDs and passwords were stolen.
