HAI PHONG (VNS) — A man was arrested by police in northern Hai Phong City for using forged official documents including personal ID papers and communist party member cards to commit frauds.
Dao Van Nui, age 30 and a local gambling addict, was taken into Le Chan District Police custody yesterday after he had taken a fake ID paper and a fake party member card, both under his name, to a local pawn shop to get a loan of VND80 million (US$3,500).
Nui told the police he ordered his fake documents from a couple, who were only identified as Pham Van Dung and Pham Thi Lan in Quan Toan Ward. He admitted to have taken nine personal ID papers to different local pawn shops and successfully swindled VND360 millions (nearly $16,000).
Dung and Lan were reported to have eluded capture. The police found a number of fake documents and a machine they used to make them at their residence. — VNS
