Phuket Police Hunt for Russian ATM Skimmer..

From the Phuket Gazette is the story of 3 Russians caught with 33 counterfeit ATM cards and an electronic card reader. Police in Phuket were tipped off to suspicious transactions coming from the Marina Shop with 300,000 Baht charged to Kasikornbank customers. Police went to the shop and waited until the 3 Russians came out. At this point police found the counterfeit ATM cards and the card reader inside the shop. The 3 Russians squealed quickly and told police that the Russian shop owner was the one to blame for the ATM skimming operation as he owned the electronic card reader and was having the money transferred to his account. Needless to say Phuket police are on the hunt for the Russian ATM skimmer mastermind behind the gang.

Commentary: What is it about Thailand that draws such huge numbers of ATM thieves? It seems like every week there’s a new group of ATM skimmers being caught in Phuket or Pattaya!
