The Judiciary Police (PJ) arrested on Thursday 23 suspects for their alleged involvement in the illegal use of UnionPay cards by conducting bogus cash transactions so that clients could get cash after swiping their cards on POS (points of sale) machines. The police also busted a shop in Taipa which allegedly served as a workshop that modified POS machines smuggled from the mainland, so that they could be used in Macau.
