The Ministry of Interior announced it arrested three suspects of Asian nationality, as they forged bank transfer orders for local companies and transferred the funds to accounts of fake companies.

The ministry said the department of economic and electronic crimes control of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation was able to arrest the suspect by coordinating with the concerned bank during the execution of one of their operations. While inspecting their houses, the department found checkbooks with fake signatures of various fictitious companies, in addition to a number of ATM cards, credit cards and bills of purchase to cover their criminal activity.

The suspects confessed to the charges attributed to them during the investigations and are being presented to the concerned authorities to complete the procedures followed in this regard.

The department urged commercial and financial institutions and companies to cooperate with them in case they notice any withdrawal of funds or purchases or transfers by non-specified means, in order to prevent any financial losses due to this type of electronic fraud.
