Hanoi (VNA) – Hanoi police on May 8 arrested three Chinese nationals for using fake ATM cards to steal from banks.

They are 40-year-old Zhu Hai Rong, 41-year-old Qiu Shui Bing and 37-year-old Zhong Jian Hua from China’s Jiangxi province.

Initial investigations indicate that in March, Zhu, Qiu and Zhong were instructed by another Chinese national to use counterfeit ATM cards.

On April 20, they received 110 ATM cards from an unidentified person who promised to pay each of them 5,000 CNY (723 USD).

After entering Vietnam via the Huu Nghi border gate in the northern province of Lang Son on April 22, they stayed in a hotel in Nam Tu Liem district, Hanoi.

They allegedly stole a total amount of money equivalent to 10,000 CNY on April 22 and again on April 23. They were arrested on April 23 while using the cards to withdraw money in Hang Trong ward, Hoan Kiem district.

The case is under further investigation.-VNA
