International cybercrime group disrupted in Romania

An international organised crime group, responsible for payment card fraud and illegal online purchases, has been successfully disrupted during a raid in Romania. The criminals had been committing fraud for years in several EU countries. It is estimated that the group clocked up hundreds of thousands of euros in damages.

European Arrest Warrants against the suspects were issued by French authorities. The three-year investigation by French Police was supported by both Europol and Eurojust.
