A Chinese tourist, suspected to be a member of card skimming gang, was arrested yesterday at Suvarnabhumi airport with blank magnetic cards, real credit cards of others, and some electronic devices believed to be card skimmers.

Li Zou Zou, 28, was searched as he passed the airport’s security checkpoint with his carry-on baggage at 03.40 am yesterday shortly after arrival on a flight.

Inside his baggage are 10 credit cards of commercial banks in China, 162 blank plastic cards, a computer notebook, and some electronic devices believed to be card readers and skimmers.

Custom officials later sought cooperation from Kasikorn Bank and Bank of Ayudhya card experts to check these plastic cards.

The check on all 10 credit cards in his possession showed they belong to others, while the over 100 plastic cards are blank with no information on them.

He was suspected to be member of card skimming gang still operates in the country.

He was detained pending investigation into his gang’s operation.
