Lim Soon Ling, a 53-year-old man from Malaysia, was arrested for using a fake passport and credit card to withdraw US$10,000 from a bank in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 on Monday.
For illustration only
On Monday morning, Ling and a Vietnamese woman went to a bank on Mac Thi Buoi Street to withdraw the money from an account under the name of a Singaporean.
Ling showed the bank staff a passport and a credit card both of which show the name of the Singaporean.
Suspecting these documents, the bank staff called the police who later detained Ling.
The police are still investigating the case.
