Ukrainian nabbed over credit-card forgery


Police have arrested a Ukrainian member of a credit card forgery gang, saying they have solid evidence of his alleged crimes. 

Immigration Bureau Police chief Pol Lt-General Nattorn Prohsunthorn 
 said Thursday that several devices for credit-card forgery were found in Oleksandr Karchkovskyi’s possession.
“We also found a list of cardholders and their credit limits,” Nattorn said. 
He added that Karchkovskyi had confessed that he sold credit-card account information for half of each card’s credit allowance. 
Karchkovskyi, who arrived in Thailand on March 11 last year, was initially arrested for using a fake credit card at a shopping centre in Bangkok’s Pratunam area on Wednesday, but the search at his rented room revealed he was linked to a credit-card forgery gang.
“Now, he is in custody. We will investigate his case further,” Nattorn said.
