BCA ATM Skimming

The Police arrested a supervisor of Bank Central Asia (BCA) for alleged involvement in the skimming of ATMs in Bali and Jakarta last January. That's what Kompas reported.

Considering that BCA is one of Indonesia's largest bank with ATMs all over the country, I hope that the investigation of this case can be concluded soon and those responsible should be prosecuted, tried in court and punished accordingly, so that customers can have peace of mind.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com — PT Bank Central Asia (BCA) admits that one of its employees has been detained at the National Police Headquarters for involvement in ATM skimming. The BCA deputy managing director, Jahja Setiaatmadja, stated that the BCA perpetrator was a supervisor in a branch in Bandung.
"We've investigated further, and one supervisor on credit cards in Bandung has been arrested by the police or in the National Police HQ," he admitted through SMS, Jakarta, Wednesday evening.                                                                                      
He explained that the perpetrator has been arrested  for card cloning and PIN theft on four victimized customers. On top of that, according to him, the perpetrator is still being examined by the police for any connection with ATM skimming networks in Bali.

"As far as the info we've got, the perpetrator still hasn't been determined to be linked with the notorious ATM skimming in Bali, because the police investigation is still ongoing."

Jahja admits that so far the police has been cooperative with the company to resolve the ATM skimming cases. BCA continues to coordinate with National Police chief detective, Comr. Gen. Ito Sumardi and spokesman, Insp. Gen. Edward Aritonang, regarding the case or arrest of this perpetrator.

"We've confirmed this with the chief detective, who's been a great support for us."
