Investigators in Jamaica have reportedly contacted the police in Dominica, after three Chinese nationals, suspected of being involved in an international fraud ring, were arrested in Jamaica recently.
The Jamaican investigators are trying to determine whether the men are part of an international fraud network operating in the region.
Recently three Chinese nationals were also arrested in Dominica and charged with theft. They appeared in court on July 12, 2016. It is alleged that they stole EC$104,705 cash belonging to the National Bank of Dominica (NBD), by withdrawing monies from an ATM.
It is believed that the three who were arrested in Jamaica travelled to several countries, including the US and Russia to carry out their scam. According to RJR News in Jamaica, the police said they seized Jamaican and US currencies along with Russian Ruble from the suspects.
The Jamaican police also reportedly seized several skimming devices and blank credit cards along with JA$6 million and other foreign currencies. The skimming devices are used to create fake credit cards, according to RJR News.
