Lahore: 3 held for credit card fraud
LAHORE: The Cyber Crime Unit (CCU) of the Federal Investigation Agency (Punjab) on Monday arrested three men who possessed fake credit cards with their credit limits running into millions of rupees. Also, CCU officials confirmed the one of the men was an Afghan living in the UK.
CCU deputy director Zia Islam said Safiullah Habibi, the Afghan, came to Lahore and bought on January 17 cell phones worth Rs 10 million on his card. He said Habibi then went to Peshawar and when he returned to pick up his goods, a CCU team led by inspectors Nayer Tirmizi and Naeem Bhatti nabbed him. He said Habibi’s card was confiscated. FIA sources said the CCU team arrested two more swindlers in a separate operation and seized fake credit cards from them. They said the combined credit limit on the cards was more than Rs 6 million. Since 2005 the CCU has arrested more than 40 people with fake credit cards and has seized Rs 6 billion from them.
