A Ho Chi Minh City court Tuesday sentenced two Turkish men to five years in jail for using fake cards to steal money from local banks.
The men, identified only as Hakan and Emrah, were found guilty of using 130 fake cards to withdraw nearly VND300 million (US$13,400) from ATMs in the city in February 2015.
They were caught while trying to take money from an HSBC booth in District 1.
Investigations found they were part of a syndicate operating in many countries.
They said they worked for a Turkish man and were paid half of the stolen money.
