FOUR PERSONS including a senior citizen, were arrested for credit card fraud and falsification of documents in Metro Manila, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said Thursday.
Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, NCRPO director, identified the suspects as Czarynah Datu, 37; Paul Cabalza, 45; Eduardo Nera Jr., 41; and Teresita Caranglan, 61, who were arrested in separate operations on Wednesday.
The operation stemmed from a call received by police from a security officer of Resorts World Manila complaining that Datu used a credit card in a fraudulent transaction after she tried to withdraw money.
Police officers arrested Datu after verifying with Banco de Oro that the card was indeed used fraudulently. Seized from her where one mobile phone, one BDO Forever 21 Master Credit Card and several suspected fake IDs all bearing the name of a certain Jasmine Raymundo.
Datu eventually told police about her cohorts which led to follow-up operations, resulting in the arrest of the other three suspects in Manila and Quezon City.
During the follow up operations, police seized a skimming device, a Louis Vuitton booklet containing different card information and contact numbers of prospected subjects, credit cards, and identification cards from the suspects.
“We continue to remind our fellow Filipinos to beware of scammers and criminals. They are just around the corner. Still, the NCRPO is always ready to protect our people,” Eleazar said.(By Christopher Lloyd Caliwan)
