Prosecutors of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism is executing on Wednesday 32 search warrants in Bucharest, Constanta and Ploiesti, to dismantle an international organized criminal group consisting of 29 people, including a policeman is specialized in computer and internet crimes. According to a press release DIICOT searches occur simultaneously in Germany and Italy. Investigators say the members of the criminal group acted in order to obtain substantial financial benefits from the activity of manufacturing / possession of counterfeiting equipment crafted for electronic payment instruments. The devices were made in Romania, transported by shipping companies to Germany and Italy and sold to other suspects for committing skimming activities. Card data thus obtained was used for writing blank cards and then for making fraudulent cash withdrawals from ATMs or make fraudulent financial transactions on POS in EU countries. Another charges is that defendants have launched phishing attacks, targeting customers and legitimate users of online payment service PayPal, in order to obtain the fraudulent data authentication / login (userid info and related passwords) and also the credit card information attached to the accounts. Another component of the criminal activity aimed to misleading many users of auction sites victimizing them through fictitious auctions. The members of the criminal group listed for sale on e-commerce sites mainly expensive jewelries and watches, known brands, goods never owned by the suspects. The suspects received the money from victims through the online payment platform PayPal, without the goods being delivered to buyers. The members of the criminal group were supported by a police officer from the General Metropolitan Police Directorate of Bucharest - CIS District 6, which provided to the members of the criminal group's personal information data of 55 Romanian citizens, data obtained by querying the police database. The information was used by fraudsters to counterfeit Romanian ID documents and to open bank accounts and paypal accounts. In this case we've been assisted by the Special Operations Division - IGRP, US Secret Service office from the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, authorities in Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, France and also by the eBay company. 40 suspects will be brought at DIICOT for hearings who will decide at the end the legal measures.

This fake shipping and escrow site is targeting car buyers in Australia.
I have tried in vain to contact the news comapny in Australia about these scammers but they refuse to repond.
I guess Laura Sparkes
only interested in doing videos of people who already got ripped off and are willing to spill their guts and cry on TV:
The doe eyed supposed expert, Mr Darson?, in the video mentions the fake escrow as being a new way of scamming people.
He is sadly mistaken.
(...as for Western Union being used.......
4 BILLION DOLLARS were funneled into Romania using that service in 2009.
Can you imagine how much money Western Union makes off scams?
The victims pay a fee and then the scammers pay fees to forward the cash.)
The page also contains a list of the previous sites run by these Romanian scammers that targeted Australian victims.
