Massive credit card fraud ring suspected in Abbotsford

Kelly Sinoski reports:

Abbotsford Police suspect a fraud ring is operating in the Fraser Valley city, after collecting 20,000 credit cards and card-making equipment in three separate incidents in the past three weeks.

One arrest has already made and police are investigating to determine whether the incidents are linked.

“From our small town, indications are we have at least one group actively working here,” Const. Ian MacDonald said. “At least 20,000 credit cards have been compromised. The manufacturer and head of operations has to be somewhere in our city.”

MacDonald said police were first alerted to the potential fraud ring on July 22 when a security guard found a flash drive — a memory storage device — at an Abbotsford business.
