BSP, banks finding ways
to stop credit card fraud

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, law enforcers and bankers are scrambling to find ways to prevent fraudulent activities involving access devices to credit cards as the police warned of a crime syndicate possibly operating in Dumaguete City.

Dumaguete police chief, Supt. Jovito Atanacio, said there are fraudsters using access cards believed to be in the capital city of Negros Oriental, although he declined to give specific details.

He disclosed, however, that this is an organized crime syndicate that has a wide reach, from outside of Dumaguete, and targets unknowing establishments that could not detect a fraudulent transaction.

Drug suspect nabbed

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and Tanjay City police operatives arrested a suspected pusher in a buy-bust operation at about 1:30 a.m. yesterday in Barangay 4, Tanjay City, Negros Oriental.

The suspect was identified as Jade Robert Rosales, 22, single, of Barangay Poblacion 9, Tanjay City. The police said Rosales will be charged for violation of Republic Act No. 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Initial police investigation showed that PDEA agents and Tanjay police personnel conducted the buy-bust operation and arrested Rosales with one heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet containing suspected shabu granules, and P500 in marked money.
