Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: BCSNoticias y UnoTV y USDOJ
A total of 7 Romanians, who are allegedly part of a criminal organization dedicated to cybercrime, human trafficking and extortion were arrested in Cabo San Lucas in the municipality of Los Cabos ; this, in an operation in coordination between the Attorney General's Office (FGR) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). 

The capture was made after an investigation initiated by FBI and the FGR's Cyber ​​Research and Technology Operations Unit in Mexico. See the US DOJ Press Release below.

The detainees were identified as Florian Claudio Martín identified as the alleged leader of the organization; Marusca “N” or Hosingr “N”, against whom there is a file issued by Interpol from Brussels, Belgium.

Like Constantinescu "N"; Nicola Laurente "N"; Pencu "N"; Stoica "N" and Leontinescu "N", which were located and arrested "without the use of force or affectation to third parties".   

The Romanians have an arrest warrant in the United States and irregular immigration status in Mexico , so the corresponding procedure will be carried out with a view to their deportation from the country. 

Finally, according to research, it is known that they used high-tech computers and equipment for the cloning of bank cards, theft of ATMs and cyber scams. The 7 Romanians arrested in Cabo San Lucas 
were part of a larger case involving 18 Members of the International Fraud and Money Laundering Conspiracy; See BELOW. For the entire Press Release use the USDOJ link.

    3. Not all Romanian are gypsy's , very intelligent Canadian girl 👌

  3. These guys from the eastern European area as well as the Russian mob are really brutal. I'm surprised they are in Mexico. I heard that a russian group was trafficking meth from Mexicali. I know Romanians are not Russians but they are nearly as brutal

    1. Omg you murricans are so ignorant. Romanians are not even slavic (like Russians, Uckarnians, Ppolish,etc) they are LATINS/Romans (like the Spaniards, Italians, French,etc).

    2. Romanians, Albanians and Russians can’t hold a candle to the Mexican Cartels. Even in western Europe they have to lay low, never mind here in Mexico.

  5. Go to Los Rambles in Barcelona . . the Romanians are the best scammers. Cards, dice, etc. They are masters. Home of gypsies and Cosaceau

    1. Romanians are not Gypsy!
      Gypsy’s leave in Romania!
      They are the scum of the world!

  6. Huummm... Romanian cyber criminals in Mexico can't get a break. What's this world coming to?
    Maybe there is a glimmer of hope here.

  7. Were there any besides Romanians?? I was scammed by some from Mexico.

  8. Their operations are flourishing in Panama and Belize and the Virgin Islands. All the money is hidden there.

  9. Their operations are flourishing in Panama and Belize and the Virgin Islands. All the money is hidden there.
