Debit Card Fraud Arrests
Police have arrested 45 people connected to an international fraud ring based in Montreal. As well, more than 12,000 counterfeit bank cards were seized during raids.
The fraud ring included accomplices in Vancouver, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Tunisia and the United Kingdom, and police are confident that they've stopped a "significant operation."
According to ACU CEO Al Morin, "these arrests are undoubtedly tied to the recent fraud experienced by many Winnipeggers, including some ACU members."
