Malaysians held over ATM frauds

TWO Malaysian men suspected of belonging to an international bank card fraud ring have been arrested for stealing 420,000 yuan (US$61,526) from the bank accounts of seven local residents.

Officials from Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate Prosecutors' Office said it was one of the biggest cases of its kind uncovered in the city.

Chong Yewloong and Chu Hannming allegedly joined the fraud gang in France in 2005 but were sent back to Malaysia after serving eight-month prison sentences.

Chong met the fraud ring leader in Malaysia this year and joined the ring with Chu, prosecutors said.

Members were sent to China to install card decoders and cameras on selected ATM machines to record information used to make forged cards.

Chong, Chu and two other Malaysian gangsters drew cash from ATM machines in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, from April to June.

Chong was caught in Guangzhou and Chu was seized in Shenzhen. The police also confiscated more than 900,000 yuan in stolen money, including 420,000 yuan stolen from Shanghai residents, and more than 3,000 forged bank cards.
