AN ARREST warrant has been issued for a man allegedly involved in an extensive credit card skimming ring.

Wodonga detectives have charged a group of three men as part of an alleged conspiracy, which initial investigations have valued at $100,000 to $200,000.

Police charged Daniel Singh, Saad Samad and Tarek Hamze after arresting them in Wodonga in May.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Singh, 33, who has gone to ground following his arrest.

Wodonga Magistrates Court was told earlier this week the Sydney man hasn’t signed on for bail once.

NSW officers have been to his house six times, but there has been no sign of him.

His neighbours haven’t spotted him.

Detective Sergeant Graeme Simpfendorfer said Singh was considered one of the “lower players” in the group, with others having their passports confiscated. 

He told the court the trio were arrested as they crossed from NSW into Victoria, and it was believed they were heading to Melbourne.
