Card fraud gang busted, Turkish citizen among 2 held

20 January 2022


Staff Reporter  :
Police arrested Hakan Janburkan, 55, a member of an international ATM card cloning scam from city's Gulshan-1. He hails from Turkey.
According to sources, Hakam recently escaped from police custody in India and came to Bangladesh.
Mofiul Islam, a Bangladeshi citizen, also was arrested with him.
During the drive, a total of 17 cards including five different models of phones, a laptop and 15 clone cards were seized from them.
Earlier, a case was filed against the accused under the Digital Security Act with the Paltan Police Station in the capital. The Transnational Crime Division of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime Unit (CTTC) arrested him from Gulshan-1 in the capital on Tuesday night.
CTTC Chief Asaduzzaman said this in a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
He said that Hakan Janbarkan came to Dhaka on December 31. After arriving in Dhaka, the Turkish national visited various booths of Eastern Bank and tried at least one hundred times to withdraw money using cloned debit and credit cards of different citizens of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA, India, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Germany, Vietnam, United Kingdom, Bolivia, Spain, Finland, Norway on 2nd to 4th January.
We are assuming that he cloned the cards from abroad.
Hakan Janbarkan also admitted that citizens of different countries, including Turkey, Bulgaria, Mexico and India were also involved with this cycle.
Eastern Bank uses anti-faming technology to detect the matter through alarm systems. As a result, they are capable of preventing hacking.
The Chief of CTTC said that this man came to Bangladesh using multiple passports. Hakan also came to Bangladesh in 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Even then his purpose was to withdraw money from the booth.
At that time he came to Bangladesh and contacted arrested associate Mofiul Islam. The brother of Mofiul Islam has also been arrested for the same crime and is in jail in India.
