Foreigners held in credit card case

The international nature of crime became obvious Saturday when judicial agents detained two men with Turkish nationality in Calle Blancos. They face allegations of credit card fraud. The victims were from Indonesia, Cambodia and Turkey.

The two men had 120 credit and debit cards on their person when detained. Agents also found $5,000. Investigators said that the cards were used at automatic tellers in Escazú, Jacó and Desamparados. They are accused of cloning the credit cards based on information they received from elsewhere.

Agents said that suspicions developed when some of the cards were retained by the automatic machines. Two local banks alerted investigators.
