KUALA LUMPUR: Police busted a credit card syndicate and arrested 14 people after raids in five states this month.

Of the 14 arrested, including five women, two had already been charged in court, Federal Commercial Crimes Investigation Department Director Comm Datuk Koh Hong Sun said on Thursday.

He said the syndicate, somehow, obtained credit card holders’ details and sold it to people who knowingly used other people’s credit card details to make purchases over the internet, mainly air tickets and hotel rooms.

“We have identified four more suspects and are looking for them,” he said and released photofits of the four during a press conference.

He also appealed to the public to come forward and give police information by calling the nearest police station.
