Forged Cheques Network Busted
Category: Crime News

Kuwaiti police succeeded in busting an international network of criminals dealing in forged cheques. 

Officers working with the General Directorate for Criminal Investigation arrested two Kuwaitis, one Saudi national, three Jordanians and one Iranian.

The seven suspects are accused of belonging to an international organized crime network. The network, which is based abroad, sends professionally-forged cheques bearing their names to local banks.

The suspects then cash each forged cheque and deduct 10% per transaction before sending the remaining amount to the head of the network who is allegedly based in an Arab country.

Inquiry revealed that the criminal network has so far managed to process 25 forged cheques and pocket KD250,000. The list of victims targeted by the gang includes Kuwaiti companies and establishments, and a major educational institution.
