The Kuwait Times: (Link) A male American made KD80,000 by reselling gold he bought with forged credit cards. His assistant, a Syrian national, helped him by translating and finding places to buy and sell the gold away from the watchful eye of the police. Criminal investigators managed to arrest both of the suspects responsible for multiple cases in which forged credit cards were used to buy gold from different jewelry shops in Kuwait.
Investigations began after authorities received information about illegal activity in which people entered Kuwait to trade illegally in gold using forged credit cards. Eventually, investigators were able to identify a shop where a suspected transaction took place. The shopkeeper provided information on the two customers he said bought bullion using credit cards.
This information helped police to arrest the Syrian suspect in Hawally, who admitted he assisted the prime suspect. He said he received his share after each operation. The American was later detained in a set up in Hawalli organized by his assistant. He explained during investigations that he transfers the majority of money obtained in the illegal operations to beneficiaries outside Kuwait, who send him the money he uses to pay for the gold. He said the credit cards were forged outside Kuwait and he brought them into the country when he arrived here.
