Casino staff tip cops to credit card fraud

A tip from security staff at River Rock Casino Resort helped Richmond Mounties bust what it describes as a credit card fraud ring.

On April 4, the casino called police to alert them to a group of suspicious men who had allegedly used fraudulent credit cards at the casino in the past.

The men were eventually arrested, with one bank claiming they are responsible for up to $250,000 in fraud losses over the past six months alone.

Charged with fraud, personation and uttering forged documents are Didier Bumba Moasa Nguma, Zongia Tara Yawili, Esio Kabari and Arnold Mpoyi Mwanza.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said the four men are most recently from the Quebec area, and they remain in custody pending their next court appearance on Thursday, April 24 at 10 a.m. in Richmond provincial court.
