Chief Inspector Chow Siu-tong, of the Commercial Crime Bureau, displays 600 fake credit cards and equipment seized this week in what he described as the largest single haul of bogus cards this year.

Police suspect the cards, worth a potential $14 million, were the work of a syndicate that bought account information from Asian countries to make them and recruited youngsters to use them.

Two mainland men, aged 34 and 48, were arrested on Thursday night after officers raided two flats in a building in Shanghai Street, Mongkok.
