Indonesia: PPATK Probes Alleged Money Laundering in BRI Skimming Case


March 18 2018

The Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) helped investigate the card-skimming bank scheme experienced by customers of BRI Bank after Jakarta Metro Police investigators uncovered an illegal flow of funds used to purchase Bitcoins.

“Fintech and the PPATK cybercrime unit will coordinate with Indonesian police’s criminal investigation agency,” said PPATK Deputy Head Dian Ediana Rae on Saturday, March 17.

The crime involving card-skimming schemes did not just occur in Jakarta but has spread across Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Kediri.
