Ukranian skimmers stealing from Phuket people bought 18 million baht houses

Three Ukranian skimmers who have been operating in Phuket for the last four years have purchased two houses worth 18 million baht on the proceeds.

Police said there were lots of victims.

CCTV from Krabi has led to the arrest of one of the gang – 38 year old Oleksandr Volvach. He was caught pressing an SCB ATM machine with a fake card.

His two friends got wise to their arrest and are still at large.

All three came to Thailand in 2014 and have been living in the expensive houses in Talang district of Phuket.

They used a new type of skimmer to read card details and photograph using a small camera inside the ATM slot.

They garnered card details from ATMs in Phuket then went to Krabi to withdraw funds from many accounts.

Fifty fake cards loaded with stolen details were found at one of the houses along with more than 20,000 baht in Thai money and dollars.

Police advised ATM users in Phuket to check machines carefully before withdrawing cash.
