Four Chinese on trial for credit card fraud

HAI PHONG (VNS) — The People's Court of Hai Phong opened the trial against four Chinese nationals yesterday who are alleged to have used high-tech devices to counterfeit credit cards.

Xiong Jie (35), Lin Wei (50), Lin Li Hua (33) and Lin Jia Jun (21) were charged with "using computers and telecommunications networks, the internet and digital equipment to appropriate assets".

According to the indictment, between March 16-26, 2013, the four suspects and two accomplices who are currently on the run successfully completed 196 transactions using forged cards to steal over VND3.9 billion (US$183,300) from Vietcombank and Vietinbank. They were caught by Hai Phong police on March 26.

The court is expected to announce a verdict today. — VNS
