Police caught up with a foreigner who took too long to rob an ATM using fake credit cards. The suspect, identified only as Ubah, tried to withdraw tens of thousands of dollars from an ATM in Yau Ma Tei, according to Headline Daily. He caught the attention of an ATM client after he was seen shuffling different bank cards and inserting them into the machine.

 

The client, a 34-year-old surnamed Li, called the police who arrived while the suspect was still not finished with his business. The officers seized 15 fake bank cards and a receipt showing Ubah had withdrawn HK$32,000 (US$4,128). About HK$12,000 was recovered from him. Ubah was charged with theft and possession of false instruments. He is believed to be part of a gang.

Pffft usign fake cards takes too much time. Just kidnap the entire ATM terminal :D Guess that by hacking into the software of the terminal one would be faster to get away with it then using fake cards as most of those terminals operate on an OS that has been discontinued from support by Microsoft over 10 years ago ( for the geeks it's Windows 2000 i am referring to ).

 

You do have to have b**s of steel to do what Ubah did because there are camera's everywhere ( even in teh ATM machine ).

What a lazy fraudster. He could have done a few cards at one bank and then a few at another.

It's good that he got caught, and he deserves it both for being a criminal and being stupid.

Using fake bank cards to rob ATM machine ... this foreign thief is just plain stupid and lazy pretending not to know or ignoring the fact that there are closed circuit cameras all around those ATMs ... his persistency at using those fake bank cards over and over again on those ATMs eventually led to his downfall.

This is a classic scam due to card skimmers and scanners. Seriously who in the world would go to an ATM with a bunch of cards? That looks so suspicious.

Greed has probably clouded his judgement. Glad the world has one less fraudster to deal with.
