Four arrested for ATM fraud in Bangladesh

216 Days ago

Dhaka: At least four people, including a foreigner, allegedly involved in an ATM skimming scam have been arrested in Dhaka.

Ukraine national Piotr Szcdepan Mazurek, admitted his role in one of the country's largest ATM fraud scheme, Detective Branch (DB) deputy commissioner Mahfuzur Rahman said on Monday.

As many as 36 customers found their money was stolen from their bank accounts by the skimming card gang since January, bdnews24.com reported.

As many as 40 bank cards were cloned to withdraw two million Taka, the police said.

Some 10 million cards are used in some 7,000 booths in Bangladesh, it said.

Footage captured in the closed-circuit television cameras of ATM booths showed a man who appeared to be a white-skinned foreigner attached devices to the ATM booth of a bank.

The instances of ATM card fraud in Bangladesh have forced almost all the 56 banks to take precautionary measures, including temporarily shutting down transactions through the national payment switch (NPS), to safeguard the interests of clients. (IANS)
