BANGKOK, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian national has been detained in the Thai capital on suspicion of fraud, the local police said on Thursday.
The man, Sergei Afanasyev, who arrived in Thailand on Saturday, used fake credit cards to withdraw cash from bank account of clients of several of European banks, the police said. Afanasyev was arrested in a Bangkok hotel. The police found 129 fake cards of foreign banks, and a skimming device (used to capture data from the magnetic stripe on the back of an ATM card) in his hotel room.
According to investigators, Afanasyev was a member of an organized group that cashed money in Thailand using credit card details stolen in European countries. According to the Thai police, he has carried out six such operations since his arrival, although no big sums of money have been found.
