15 September 2021 21:38 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Metro Police were hunting a foreigner who was suspected of masterminding the ATM skimming scheme and robbing Rp17 billion from customers of state lender BNI. The police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus said the foreigner used the nickname Tokyo1880.

“The suspect is overseas,” said Yusri at the Jakarta Metro Police HQ, South Jakarta, Wednesday, September 15.

The suspect only communicated with his colleagues in Jakarta online. The police were still tracking the whereabouts of Tokyo1880 whose identity had been known.

The Metro Police’s Special Criminal Investigation Unit had arrested two foreigners, a Russian identified as VK and a Dutch identified as NG, and one Indonesian citizen RW.

The syndicate admitted to having committed crimes during the past year. The total money belonging to BNI customers they robbed reached Rp17 billion.

Yusri explained they used a more sophisticated deep skimmer machine than the usual ones. “They chose an easy place to install the deep skimmer. During the installment, they were in disguise wearing a hat because they knew there was CCTV,” he added.

The three skimming suspects were charged with Article 30(2), Article 6, Article 32 in conjunction with Article 48, Article 36, and Article 38 in conjunction with Article 51 of Law No. 19 of 19 concerning Electronic Information and Transactions or ITE Law. They were also charged with Articles 363 and 236 of the Criminal Code with a maximum penalty of seven years in prison.
