Credit Cards

National Police officers have frozen funds to the value of 100,000 euros in an account in a Manilva bank after the arrest in Algeciras of an American man and a British woman aged 50 and 38 years respectively.

The money is believed to be part of a 348,372 dollar credit card fraud, which was brought to light after a complaint last January by an international online payment company.

After tracking the couple through Estepona, Manilva, Guadiaro and Algeciras, they were finally arrested, and a search of their home revealed four laptop computers, five external hard drives, six mobile phones, 19 credit cards and 4500 pounds sterling in cash.

It is believed the couple were using cloned and stolen credit cards to secure goods and money via the internet.
