Theft of large funds through counterfeit bank cards is revealed

ArmInfo.Theft of large funds from ATMs using counterfeit bank cards was revealed.

According to the RA Police, the Department for Combating Crimes in  the Sector of High Technologies of the Main Directorate of the  Criminal Police received operational information that someone from  the ATMs belonging to one of the foreign banks of Armenia using  computer technology during 2019-2020 years committed theft on an  especially large scale by cashing.

On the basis of the received operational information, large-scale  operational-search measures were taken, during which law enforcement  officers collaborated with employees of the relevant bank service. 

The locations of the ATMs from which money had been stolen by  counterfeit bank cards were identified.  Continuing the  operational-search activities, operational data were obtained about  the suspect in theft. The identity of the suspect was clarified, and  information was obtained about which ATM on August 13, he would  probably cash out. On the same day, officers of the General  Directorate of the Criminal Police, while attempting to cash out,  detained a 30-year-old man from Yerevan, who, during a personal  search, found 3 counterfeit plastic cards and cash.

Factual data were received that in July-August alone he stole 7.5  million AMD from the bank's ATMs using fake plastic cards. It also  turned out that the cards were made in the United States using  computer technology and brought to Armenia, and by placing them in  ATMs and dialing the appropriate codes, he cashed amounts of  different sizes.

A criminal case was initiated on the fact under paragraph 1 of part 3  of Article 181 (theft committed with the use of computer equipment on  an especially large scale) of the RA Criminal Code. The instituted  criminal case was sent to the Investigative Committee for preliminary  investigation. A 30-year-old resident of Yerevan was detained. The  investigation continues.
