Johannesburg - The court case of Bulgarian man arrested for allegedly bringing bank card skimming device components into the country was postponed in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Monday, police said.

Todor Dimitrov Terziev, 38, was remanded in custody until his bail application on Wednesday, said Colonel Vishnu Naidoo.

Crime intelligence, the cyber crimes investigation unit and the Hawks arrested Terziev at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Saturday.

They had received a tip off that the man was bringing components into the country to make skimming devices.

Skimming devices can duplicate information stored on bank cards, thus facilitating fraudulent use of the cards.
