Foreign gang scams cash from Auckland ATMs

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/06/2016

Police have arrested three Romanian nationals who they allege used counterfeit credit cards skimmed in Europe to withdraw cash from ATMs in Auckland.

Detective Senior Sergeant Iain Chapman says the scam was sophisticated and banks noticed a significant amount of money being withdrawn from ATMs throughout the Auckland region.

The men, aged from their late 20s to early 40s, will appear in Auckland District Court on Saturday on fraud charges.

Police believe they are part of an organised crime group. The men arrived in New Zealand in April.
