US: Global $200 million credit card hacking ring busted
Law enforcement officials said 11 people in the United States, the UK and Vietnam have been arrested and accused of running a $200 million worldwide credit card fraud ring.

New York: Eleven people in the United States, the UK and Vietnam have been arrested and accused of running a $200 million worldwide credit card fraud ring, US and UK law enforcement officials said on Wednesday.

"One of the world's major facilitation networks for online card fraud has been dismantled by this operation, and those engaged in this type of crime should know that they are neither anonymous, nor beyond the reach of law enforcement agencies," Andy Archibald, interim Deputy Director of the National Cyber Crime Unit, said in a statement on the British government's Serious Organised Crime Agency website.

The arrests were coordinated by the three countries, the statement said.

On Wednesday, prosecutors in New Jersey said they had filed charges against a 23-year-old man from Vietnam.

In a statement, they said that authorities in Vietnam had arrested Duy Hai Truong in that country on May 29 in an effort to break up a ring that he is being accused of running with co-conspirators, who were not named in the statement.

Prosecutors claim Truong and accomplices stole information related to more than a million credit cards and resold it to criminal customers through the websites www.matteuter.biz and www.mattfeuter.com, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in New Jersey.

Although Truong has been charged in the United States, he does not have a US-based lawyer because he is being held in Vietnam, said Rebekah Carmichael, a spokeswoman for the US Attorney in New Jersey.
