A representative of a payment agency and a group of brokers who were issued virtual accounts and sold them to criminal organizations were arrested by the police.

The Seoul Songpa Police Station arrested 12 people, including a broker A and a broker, on charges of selling more than 50,000 virtual accounts to voice phishing and illegal gambling organizations for 70 billion won.

It was investigated that the money that came into these virtual accounts was over 1 trillion won for about a year from April last year.
