Romanians’ Involvement In A Cybercrime In US

Bogdan-Stefan Popescu, Liviu-Sorin Nedelcu, Vlad-Calin Nistor, and Beniamin-Filip Ologeanu are those crooks from Romania who have been accused of money laundering and deceiving millions of people in the United States of America.

The digital currency is at the core of all the crimes committed by the defendants mentioned above. The co-conspirators of Nedelcu took part in money laundering schemes to convert the sufferer’s payment into bitcoin. Moreover, the criminals took up the roles of sales executives and customer service agents, to carry out their misdemeanors.

Some Measures to Prevent Cyber-crime

These successful investigations are proof that no one is above and beyond the hands of justice. Fictitious accounts should be frozen and adequate measures adopted to stop such felonies. If you doubt the pricing of a product being too good, it most probably is a scam.

Lastly, if you happen to use an escrow account make sure it’s a legitimate one. Read all the guidelines before you participate in an online auction which might turn out to be a racket run by a money-laundering agency.
