Chinese, Taiwanese arrested in Pattaya with fake credit cards

By The Nation

 

Pattaya and immigration police have arrested a Chinese man and a Taiwanese man for allegedly making fake credit cards with stolen information for an accomplice in Laos to use.

 

Pattaya police chief Pol Col Apichai Krobphet held a press conference on Saturday to announce the arrest of Chen Hung Cheng, 27, a Taiwanese, and Wang Fuhui, 30, a Chinese.

 

The two were arrested following a tip-off at their rented house at the Seagull Village housing estate near Jomtien Beach on Friday. Police found 17 fake credit cards, three computers and a card writer and reader.

 

The two said the stolen information on the credit cards belonged to card holders overseas. They said they made the fake cards and sent them to an accomplice in Laos to buy goods as they dared not use the fake cards in Thailand.

Apichai said the immigration police would inform their counterparts in Laos to arrest the accomplice.
