Romanian authorities have announced the arrests of 25 people in connection with a well-organised operation using cloned bank cards to withdraw cash from ATMs.
The gang is thought to have hauled in well over $15 million in closely synchronised cashing-out runs around the world.
Police searched 42 properties in 6 cities across Romania on Sunday and arrested 25 suspects, although the full strength of the gang is thought to be at least 52 people.
The group is suspected of being behind a spate of cashing actions in 24 countries around the world in 2013, making as many as 34,000 separate withdrawals.
52 crooks, now that's a conspiracy!
