Romanian gang jailed for ATM fraud

Four members of a Romanian crime gang – who plant spy cameras on the sides bank cash machines to steal customers’ PINs – were today (August 21), sentenced after pleading guilty to fraud, money laundering and possessing false documents.

According to detectives, they got away with more than £160,000, which they siphoned to Italy, Colombia and Panama, but had bogus cards with a street value of £16 million.

The fraud ring was busted in December last year by the Dedicated Cheque and Plastic Crime Unit — the police section sponsored by the banking industry — and the Romanian National Police.
