The Joint Deterrence Force has arrested a man with around 90 MasterCard credit cards. In what seems to be a corruption case, the cards, with a balance of around $15.000, were issued by Aman Bank in Tripoli with the help of an employee, who is still at large.

The man used to send the credit cards to a friend in Turkey, who withdraws the money, with an interest of $20 for each card, and sends the dollars back to Libya, to be sold in the black market where the price of a dollar has exceeded 3 dinars. The credit cards were issued with a bank rate of LYD 1.39 for the dollar.
