Miss Singapore World, Ris Low, announced her resignation on Tuesday coming five days after news broke out that she was involved in credit card fraud.

Low had come under public pressure to be stripped of her 2009 title after local reports emerged that the previous beauty queen stole credit cards last year while working at a medical clinic and bought personal items for approximately US$5,700.

Pageant organizers on Tuesday confirmed Low's resignation and said the first runner up, Claire Lee, would represent Singapore at the Miss World 2009 pageant in South Africa in December.
