Six Romanians, arrested for major electronic fraud in the US

Six Romanian citizens were arrested Wednesday when police dismantled a ring of internet cheaters that targeted the customers of several American sites, the Ministry of Justice announced. The fraud exceeded USD 3 M. The six Romanians and an Albanian, with ages between 30 and 43, were charged with electronic fraud, money laundering and forging their passports, and could be extradited from the United States. According to the indictment act launched Wednesday, the seven suspects posted on eBay, Cars.com or AutoTrade.com announcements about the sale of cars, boats, motorcycles or other articles with prices between USD 10,000 and 45,000. They charged the money, but did not deliver the products, so buyers reported the scam to authorities. The Romanians could spend 20 years in prison for internet fraud and money laundering, and up to 10 years for passport forgery.
