Moment suspect in ‘industrial’ theft of 480,000 card numbers arrested at airport

The moment a suspect associated with a UK-founded website used to defraud victims on an “industrial scale” was arrested at an airport was caught on police bodycam footage.

LabHost, a scammer site set up in 2021 by a criminal network, obtained 480,000 card numbers and 64,000 PINs globally.

The site allowed users to set up phishing websites intended to trick victims into giving away personal information such as bank details, email addresses, and passwords.

Authorities have arrested 37 suspects across the UK and globally, including at Manchester and Luton airports.
