Ukrainians nabbed in credit card scam

Two Ukrainians have been arrested in Negombo in a credit card scam, police spokesman SP Ajith Rohana said.

He said that the two Ukrainians had with them at least 106 forged credit cards as well as a large sum of stolen money.

Rohana said that the suspects had foreign currency in their possession as well including US Dollars and Euros.

The two foreigners duplicated stolen credit card numbers and had later withdrawn money from ATM machines around the country.

The police spokesman said that they suspect a Sri Lankan is also involved in the scam and investigations are underway.

The police meanwhile urged the public to be cautious when using their credit cards as the details can be duplicated without the knowledge of the customer.
