Making fake credit cards

Surrey RCMP have shut down a high-tech credit-card making operation.

Cpl. Elenore Sturko said on Nov. 9 police executed a search warrant at a residence in the 6100 block of 175A Street and uncovered what is believed to be a sophisticated operation.

“During the investigation at the residence, investigators located and seized high-powered computers, embossers, laminators and other equipment associated to the manufacturing of fraudulent credit cards. They also seized a significant quantity of keys, locks, key cutters and a large quantity of stolen mail,” said Sturko.

Two men and one woman have been arrested in conjunction with this investigation however, charges have not yet been laid as the investigation is on-going.

“The impacts of identity theft and fraud go beyond financial complications,” said Sturko. “For victims, there often comes a lot of personal stress. We are pleased that this investigation has effectively shut down this criminal operation which has likely impacted hundreds of people.”

Anyone with more information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or contact Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
