HA NOI (VNS) — Police in Ha Noi City on Saturday arrested five people for using fake credit cards to conduct transactions and steal hundreds of millions of dong.

The five suspects, ages 24 to 42, include Nguyen Huy Long and Vu Thanh Quang, who reside in the city, Hoang Thi Minh of northern Hai Phong City, and two Chinese.

The suspects were discovered after using false passwords for credit cards issued by foreign banks to conduct 77 transactions, worth over VND5 billion (US$238,000), through the Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam (Vietcombank) from late December through January 7. Suspecting the transactions to be forged, Vietcombank only honored 6 of them, worth VND432 million ($20,000).

The investigation into the fraud is continuing. — VNS
