A large commercial bank has sued a local man for refusing to pay thousands of yuan in transactions that he said were fraudulently charged to his credit card, Huangpu District People's Court said Thursday.

On the evening of October 3, 2010, the bank alerted the defendant via text message that 5,132 yuan ($815) had been charged to his credit card, which was password protected, according to a transcript of the court hearing.

Lu checked his balance and went to a bank machine on Chunshen Road in Minhang district to withdrawal 200 yuan in cash to show that someone had cloned his card.

On October 4, he called the bank to report the fraudulent charges. On October 9, he called the police.

In court, the bank said that the disputed charges were made at a seafood market in Qidong, Jiangsu Province. The bank also acknowledged that the receipts for the purchases did not bear Lu's signature.

The court did not disclose the name of the bank. It only said that it is one of the big four State-owned commercial banks.
