Five prisoners were found in 2013 after leading an anti-computer fraud group that stole about 350,000 euros. The criminal group is said to have cheated bank units, supermarkets and businesses.
Some of the funds received by team members were taken to prisoners during regular visits and transferred electronically to their bank accounts. Members of the organization also call people who have been cheated and ask for prepaid phone card recharge codes and other phone prompts.
The organized crime also cheated nine romanian companies and overseas financial transfer company, through the false identity false remittance, claiming that they are just for a test system of the system.
