KARACHI: A Chinese national was arrested in Karachi's Bahadurabad area for his alleged involvement in ATM skimming fraud Sunday morning.

An ATM skimming device and Rs0.65 million along with his passport were found on the suspect, said the police, adding that the suspect has been identified as Shu Shuping. According to the police, three accomplices of the suspect managed to flee.

On January 10, two Chinese men were caught red-handed by police in Karachi while trying to install skimmers in a local bank ATM.

The arrests have sent a shock wave among citizens using debit and credit cards.

According to officials, the arrested foreigners were seen suspiciously loitering about around an ATM booth on Karachi's Abdullah Haroon Road in Saddar area for the past three days.

They were caught when bank staff informed Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) that the men have installed skimmers in the ATM, SP Saddar Tauqeer Naeem told reporters.

What is ATM skimming?

ATM skimming is a type of fraud which occurs when an ATM is compromised by a skimming device, which is a card reader that can be made to look like a part of the machine. The card reader saves the users' card number and pin code, which is then replicated into a counterfeit copy for theft.
