Woman arrested after 23 stolen ATM cards were found in her private part

A 23-year-old Tanzanian woman suspected of illegally obtaining bank users’ ATM cards and then withdrawing their monies has been arrested by the police and the shocker is that 23 ATM Cards were found hidden in her private part.

Halima had used different cards of the same bank to withdraw money from a CRDB Bank ATM in Mbagala and this got the teller to alert the security personnel.

Confirming the case, Dar es Salaam regional police boss, Lazaro Mambosasa reportedly said, “She said they have been targeting the elderly rich-but-illiterate men and women, and pretend to help them withdraw money from ATM machines.

Of course, you know many a times, when one is counting money, the last thing they would pick from the counter is the ATM card and the identity card.
