A gang suspected to use fake credit cards to purchase luxury goods was smashed by police yesterday. Three men and six women were arrested and a total of 14 fake credit cards and three forged identity cards were seized. Commercial Crime Bureau detectives mounted operations on both sides of the harbour after a tip-off. Gang members had been spotted in Shun Lei Estate, Sau Mau Ping, while others were seen in Des Voeux Road West, Western District. Two women were seen entering a supermarket at Shun Lei Estate at about 5pm where they selected $3,400 worth of dried seafood and canned abalone. One took out a credit card to pay, but when staff tried to check the card, she snatched the card away and left without the goods. Minutes later, a man and a woman tried to buy seafood worth $2,000. The man took out a credit card but when the staff tried to check it, it was also snatched back. All four customers were seen boarding a taxi. They were arrested with the taxi driver after fake credit cards were found in the vehicle. Another team of detectives intercepted a taxi in Des Voeux Road West and arrested the driver and three women. Several fake credit cards and three forged ID cards were found.
