A 36-year-old Chinese man has been arrested in Bangkok on charges of using counterfeit credit cards forged with his compatriots’ data.

Feng Yi Sheng was arrested at the Lumpini Place condominium on Rama IX Road in Huai Khwang district on Friday, said Pol Col Padol Jandon, a superintendent of the Economic Crime Suppression Division.

The arrest followed a complaint from a bank about the suspected use of counterfeit credit cards at locations on Chaeng Watthana Road in Nonthaburi province.

Police found 60 credit cards in the suspect’s room. The bank that filed the complaint initially confirmed that 28 of the seized cards contained illegally obtained data of other Chinese cardholders.

Police also found a skimmer and a laptop computer in the room.

Pol Col Padol said the suspect confessed to the crime and that investigators were looking for his accomplices.
