Police in Uganda arrest four Bulgarians for attempted ATM skimming

Police in the Ugandan capital Kampala arrested four Bulgarians for attempting to use skimming devices to drain money from automated bank teller machines.

The four were found to be in possession of a number of devices related to bank machine skimming, as well as bank cards and PIN numbers that the group allegedly had made to siphon money from accounts of wealthy clients at a number of leading banks.

The scheme allegedly involved draining money from bank accounts, changing it into US dollars and then transmitting this money back to accounts held by the group.
