HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City police arrested two Malaysians for allegedly using duplicated ATM and credit cards to withdraw money.
The police seized a total of 32 counterfeit cards from Cheng Puising and Wong Siew Wah, both born in 1995. They were caught at an ATM on Dong Khoi road, Ben Nghe district after the police received a call from the Vietcombank Card Centre about suspicious money withdrawals there.
The pair told the police that they were attempting to withdraw money from the ATM. They also confessed that they had previously bought a Louis XIII bottle of wine worth VND106 million (US$5,000) using a duplicated credit card at a hotel in District 1.
The police suspects them of involvement in many fraudulent card transactions in the past.
The case is currently under investigation. — VNS
