SAUDI ARABIA: Public Prosecution probes into frauds of 10-member ATM scam gang

RIYADH-Saudi Arabia's Public Prosecution announced that it is investigating into the crimes of a 10-member gang of foreigners who are involved in defrauding several ATM users. An arrest warrant was issued against the members of the gang.
An official source at the Public Prosecution stated that its investigations revealed that the gang include 4 expatriates and 6 persons who are violators of the residency law.

The accused were defrauding ATM users by approaching them to help complete their banking procedures.

The source said that the fraudsters used their fraudulent methods to get the secret numbers of ATM users, and then exchange the bank cards of the victims without their knowledge. Then, the fraudsters reuse the card and steal the money in those bank accounts to spend it and transfer it to other defendants.

The source indicated that the investigation procedures against the accused will be completed, and then cases will be referred to the competent court, demanding severe penalties for them.

It is important and necessary for everyone to be careful and take precautions and not to be lenient in trusting others in using banking services, the source said, while warning everyone not to share their banking data and details of financial transactions with others.

Any behavior or activity that involves financial fraud or exploitation and deception of others is considered as a behavior that requires severe accountability, the source added (SG)
