by on April 11, 2012

CALGARY, Canada- Three people faces credit card fraud charges after being arrest by Calgary police. Christopher Tabios Arquillano, 35, Francis Molina Dionela, 34, and Myra Dela Cruz Paule, 31, all of Calgary, were arrested on March 28 when a police tactical unit searched a home in the 2200 block of 19th Street N.E..

Numerous items were found such as embossers, blank cards, laminators, and a hair flatiron.  Several computers and data storage devices were taken and over 200 forged credit cards and forged documentation was seized.

Calgary police note that credit card counterfeiting is getting more sophisticated all the time. The police had been watching this operation since January while investigating other fraud complaints. According to the police, this group of counterfeiters may have been working together for more than a year.

Although this was not a credit card skimming operation, the police are unsure if any personal information has been stolen. More charges could be pending as further investigation into fraud in Albert and Saskatchewan is ongoing.
