The wife of a Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 victim was stunned when she saw that her husband’s credit cards were being used after the plane crashed in Ukraine last week, the Daily Mail reported. Cameron Dalziel’s wife Reine has since cancelled her husband’s credit cards upon noticing activity in his account, her brother told CNN.

Cameron was a South African travelling on a British passport, who had moved with his wife and two children to Malaysia recently.

The report said that the “heartless” rebels, who allegedly shot the plane down, had been using victims’ credit cards, answering their phones and looting their belongings, including jewellery, from the crash site. …

This only added weight to reports that the pro-Russian rebels have looted the MH17 crash site to sabotage the investigation into the disaster and to cash in on it, the Daily Mail reported.

The report said that a picture of a rebel taking a ring from a body at the disaster site has also surfaced.
