The Central Crime Branch (CCB) police have arrested three people, including a Sri Lankan, in a fake credit card scam.
The trio have been arrested for defrauding bank customers in different countries of a staggering Rs 100 crore by faking their credit cards in what is believed to be a massive online racket, according to a report in Bengaluru Mirror.
Investigators recovered 144 fake credit cards from them. They would reportedly get the card details of users in the US, Japan and other foreign countries, create fake cards and use them to make online purchases.
The three accused are Divyan, 30-year-old man from Jaffna in Sri Lanka, Nawaz Sherrief, 22, of Kanakanagar, and Nadeem Sherrief, 30, of HBR Layout.
The gang had targeted customers from Australia, Japan, Germany, Britain and other European countries presuming that police would not come to India in search of them.
