International gang involved in money theft from ATMs, says FIA
RAWALPINDI: Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Friday said an international gang was involved in money theft from Automated Teller Machines (ATMs).
“The gang behind money theft from ATMs is not a local one, but it is a big network of international gang,” said FIA Cybercrime Director Shakeel Durrani while talking to media.
He said a member of the gang, Saqibullah, a resident of Rawalpindi, was arrested from Dhok Tonsa who conceded having direct links with a group of Indian, Canadian, Italian and Nigerian hackers.
“The international gang is involved in forging fake credit cards and blackmailing women after making their inappropriate videos,” he said.
Last week, customers’ information on debit cards of Habib Bank Limited in Karachi was compromised by hackers through skimming to create its clones and were used to withdraw depositor’s money from various locations within and outside the country.
