Richmond: RCMP tracked more than 20,000 credit card account numbers as part of a raid on a Richmond condo last month. Police executed a search warrant and during the raid police seized two credit card embossing machines, a card printer, card skimming devices, numerous forged credit cards as well as several computers and hard drives.
Investigators say the case is linked to Asian organized crime. It’s unclear how these credit card account numbers ended up in the credit card
factory. Police believe that forged credit cards from this factory have been used throughout Canada and across the border in Washington State.
Alex Chih Sheng Chen has been charged with numerous credit card fraud related charges. Further charges are expected as investigation
continues.
