Fostul preşedinte al Societăţii de Investiţii Financiare Oltenia, Dinel Staicu, a fost condamnat, luni, la 11 ani de închisoare de Judecătoria Sectorului 2, în dosarul deschis de procurorii anticorupţie pentru fraudarea patrimoniului SC Transgaz SA Mediaş cu peste 11 milioane de euro.


Decizia instanţei nu este definitivă şi poate fi atacată cu recurs la Tribunalul Bucureşti.
Staicu a primit această pedeapsă pentru complicitate la abuz în serviciu în formă calificată şi asociere pentru săvârşirea de infracţiuni.
Instanţa a mai dispus şi interdicţia ca Staicu să fie ales în autorităţile publice sau în funcţii elective publice, să ocupe o funcţie implicând exerciţiul autorităţii de stat sau una de conducere a unei persoane juridice pe o perioadă de şapte ani.
În acelaşi caz au fost condamnaţi la închisoare mai mulţi oameni de afaceri, dar şi un fost director al Transgaz, care l-ar fi ajutat pe Dinel Staicu să devalizeze compania. Practic, mai multe firme controlate de acesta ar fi fost interpuse între Transgaz şi firmele consumatoare, iar societăţile lui Dinel Staicu încasau, în mod nelegal, bani, prejudiciul fiind de peste 25 de milioane de lei.
Magistraţii de la Judecătoria Sectorului 2 au mai dispus ca toţi inculpaţii din dosar să achite Transgaz SA peste 25 de milioane de lei, reprezentând daune materiale.

Acesti conspiratori au deschis  conturi bancare in Statele Unite sub identități false cu ajutorul pașapoartelor frauduloase, efectuate în Europa de alti conspiratori. Când victimele trimiteau bani într-un cont identificat pe facturile false, conspiratorii asociati cu acel cont erau anunțati și apoi retrageau sumele și  le trimiteau prin transfer bancar la un alt conspirator pe baza instrucțiunilor din e-mail.

Nicolae Sava pus sub acuzare pentru frauda

Nikolae Sava, 36, of Oradea, Romania, was charged on September 3, 2013, by information with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and possession of a fraudulent passport, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. Sava conspired with others to defraud persons who sought to purchase used vehicles on the Internet. Savva used false passports supplied by other conspirators to open bank accounts in the United States for the purpose of receiving funds obtained by fraud from the prospective buyers. These buyers would wire money to the bank accounts opened by Savva, and Savva would immediately withdraw the funds and then wire most of the money to conspirators outside the United States. The buyer was not able to recover the funds she sent after she discovered that the offer to sell the vehicle was fraudulent.
If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment; three years’ supervised release; $500,000 fine; restitution; forfeiture; and a $200 special assessment
The case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States Customs and Border Protection, and it is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Albert S. Glenn.
An indictment, information, or criminal complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Cristea Mircea, Ion Pieptea, si Nicolae Simion extradati in SUA pentru a fi judecati pentru fraude

Romanian nationals Cristea Mircea, Ion Pieptea, and Nicolae Simion will make their first appearance before United States District Judge Edward R. Korman later today following their extradition to the United States from Romania. The defendants are charged with participating in a sophisticated multi-million-dollar cyber fraud scheme that targeted consumers on U.S.-based Internet marketplace websites such as eBay.com. Their extradition followed a coordinated international takedown in December 2012, during which law enforcement officials in Romania, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, and Canada, acting at the request of the United States, arrested six Romanian nationals, including Mircea, Pieptea and Simion. The Bucharest Appeals Court ordered the extraditions of Mircea, Pieptea, and Simion on February 2, 2013. The defendants were subsequently transported to the Eastern District of New York and arraigned on March 27, 2013.
The extraditions were announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and George C. Venizelos, Assistant Director in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office
As alleged in the indictment, the defendants and their co-conspirators saturated Internet marketplace websites, such as eBay.com, Cars.com, AutoTrader.com, and CycleTrader.com, with detailed advertisements for cars, motorcycles, boats, and other high-value items generally priced in the $10,000 to $45,000 range. Unbeknownst to the buyers, however, the merchandise did not exist. The so-called sellers corresponded with the victim buyers by e-mail, sending fraudulent certificates of title and other information designed to lure the victims into parting with their money. Sometimes, they pretended to sell cars from non-existent auto dealerships in the United States and even created phony websites for these fictitious dealerships.
The indictment further describes how, after the purported sellers reached an agreement with the victim buyers, they would often e-mail them invoices purporting to be from Amazon Payments, PayPal, or other online payment services, with wire transfer instructions. However, these invoices were also fraudulent—the members of the conspiracy used counterfeit service marks in designing the invoices so that they would appear identical to communications from legitimate payment services. The fraudulent invoices directed the buyers to send money to American bank accounts that had been opened by foreign nationals in the United States, known as “arrows.” Finally, the arrows would collect the illicit proceeds and send them to the defendants in Europe by wire transfer and other methods. For example, the arrows forwarded defendant Pieptea $18,000 cash in fraud proceeds hidden inside hollowed-out audio speakers.
According to court filings, the defendants and their co-conspirators allegedly defrauded their victims of at least $2 million during the course of the conspiracy. Notwithstanding the scope of the fraud, however, one of the co-conspirators boasted, in a recorded conversation, that “criminals will not be extradited from Romania to the U.S.A....[I]t will never happen.”
Each defendant is charged with conspiracy to commit substantives offenses against the United States, wire fraud, and money laundering. The defendants face a maximum sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment on each count of conviction.
“These three defendants allegedly reached across the globe to defraud Americans, pretending to be legitimate online vendors and payment providers. In reality, they were con men with a computer. The defendants’ extraditions to the United States should make clear that our efforts to protect Internet consumers do not stop at our borders,” stated United States Attorney Lynch. “Thanks to our strong international partnerships, the notion that cybercriminals will never be extradited to the United States is merely a criminal’s fantasy.” Ms. Lynch extended her grateful appreciation to the FBI for its assistance.
The Romanian government, particularly the Ministry of Justice, the Romanian Internal Intelligence Service, and the Directorate for Combating Organized Crime, provided significant assistance and support during the investigation, arrest, and extradition of the defendants. The Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs worked with its counterparts in Romania to effect the extraditions, and the U.S. Marshals Service coordinated and transported the defendants to the United States.
The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Cristina Posa, Nadia Shihata, and Claire Kedeshian and Trial Attorney Carol Sipperly of the Criminal Division’s Computer Crimes and Intellectual Property Section.
The charges against the defendants are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Defendants:Cristea Mircea, age 30, Romania
Ion Pieptea, age 36, Romania
Nicolae Simion, age 37, Romania

Defendant in Romanian Cyber Crime Ring Convicted of Wire Fraud and Identification Document Fraud Conspiracies

Following a four-day trial, a federal jury in Brooklyn yesterday returned a verdict convicting David Ojo of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and identification document fraud. The defendant was a member of an international organized crime conspiracy, operating in Romania, Bulgaria, and the United States, that defrauded victims of tens of thousands of dollars through an Internet scam.
The conviction was announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and George Venizelos, Assistant Director in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), New York Field Office.
Trial testimony showed that the defendant and his co-conspirators advertised used cars for sale on websites like Craigslist and eBay. Some buyers who responded to the advertisements were told variations of a story that the seller of the car had been called to active duty in Afghanistan and needed to sell his car quickly. The victims were promised that their purchases would be handled by an eBay or Google checkout agent, who would hold their payments in escrow until they had received the car. Once the victims agreed to buy the cars and wired payments through Western Union, they never received any cars or heard from the purported sellers again.
The defendant worked with individuals in Romania and the United States to make and use false Pennsylvania and Delaware driver’s licenses, which they used to claim the money that the victims had wired through Western Union. The defendant was personally responsible for making or directing more than 30 separate money pick-ups in which victims were defrauded out of more than $80,000.
“Ojo and his cohorts sought to hide in cyberspace as they concocted a scheme that crossed the ocean and invoked patriotic themes to fleece hard working Americans. Their scheme was a new low for used car dealers, but no match for law enforcement. This conviction shows that we are committed to rooting out Internet scams that prey on those that purchase goods online,” stated United States Attorney Lynch.
When sentenced by the Honorable Allyne R. Ross, the defendant faces a maximum penalty of 20 years’ imprisonment.
The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Douglas M. Pravda and Margaret E. Gandy.
The Defendant:
DAVID OJO
Age: 32

Bogdan Boceanu condamnat la sase ani jumate de inchisoare

 Bogdan Boceanu si Andrei Bolovan au fost condamnati la 6 ani sumate respectiv doi ani si trei luni de inchisoare pentru fraude pe internet. Acestia au fost arestati si extradati din Romania in SUA. Romanii faceau parte dintr-o retea internationala de infractori care furau datele bancare ale americanilor trimitand linkuri false prin email, cu ajutorul carora obtineau aceste date.

Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, and Kimberly K. Mertz, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced that two Romanian citizens were sentenced today by United States District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven for participating in an extensive Internet “phishing” scheme. Bogdan Boceanu, 30, was sentenced to 80 months of imprisonment, and Andrei Bolovan, 29, was sentenced to 27 months of imprisonment.
A phishing scheme uses the Internet to target large numbers of unwary individuals, using fraud and deceit to obtain private personal and financial information such as names, addresses, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, and Social Security numbers. Phishing schemes often work by sending out large numbers of counterfeit e-mail messages that are made to appear as if they originated from legitimate banks, financial institutions, or other companies. The fraudulent e-mail messages ask individuals to click on a hyperlink contained in the e-mail message, which would take the individual to a counterfeit site on the Internet that purports to be the Internet site of the particular bank, financial institution, or company. At the counterfeit Internet site, the individual is then asked to enter information such as the individual’s name, address, and credit or debit card numbers.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in June 2005, a resident of Madison, Connecticut contacted the FBI in New Haven about a suspicious e-mail that she had received that purported to be from Connecticut-based People’s Bank. The e-mail stated that the recipient’s online banking access profile had been locked and instructed the recipient to click on a link to a web page where the recipient could enter information to “unlock” his or her profile. The web page appeared to originate from People’s Bank, but, as the investigation revealed, was actually hosted on a compromised computer in Minnesota. Any personal identifying and financial information provided by the individual would be sent by e-mail to individuals in Romania, or to a “collector” account, which was an e-mail account used to receive and collect the information obtained through phishing.
Boceanu, Bolovan, and others were part of a loose-knit conspiracy of individuals from Craiova, Romania, and neighboring areas that shared files, tools, and stolen information obtained through phishing. The co-conspirators used and shared a number of collector accounts, which contained thousands of e-mail messages that contained credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, CVV codes, PINs, and other personal identification information such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers. The co-conspirators then used the personal and financial information to access bank accounts and lines of credit and to withdraw funds without authorization, often from ATMs in Romania.
The investigation revealed that Boceanu was a prolific trafficker of stolen information. He exchanged with a co-conspirator e-mails that contained numerous credit card numbers that had been obtained through the scheme and received from another co-conspirator credit card numbers and account usernames and passwords, as well as other identifying information of numerous victims. More than 12,000 credit or debit card numbers were found in Boceanu’s e-mail accounts between 2004 and 2009. Boceanu also purchased a machine used to encode stolen account information on magnetic strips on credit and debit cards.
Bolovan was involved in the phishing conspiracy from 2004 through 2007, buying and selling stolen information, harvesting e-mail addresses, and spamming. Analysis of Bolovan’s e-mail accounts revealed more than 1,200 stolen credit or debit card numbers.
In addition to People’s Bank, financial institutions and companies targeted by the defendants included Citibank, Capital One, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Comerica Bank, Regions Bank, LaSalle Bank, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo & Co., eBay, and PayPal.
This seven-year investigation has resulted in criminal charges against 19 Romanian citizens. On January 18, 2007, a grand jury in New Haven returned an indictment charging seven defendants with various offenses stemming from this scheme. On November 10, 2010, a grand jury returned a second superseding indictment charging an additional 12 defendants, including BOCEANU and Bolovan.
The first three defendants to face charges were extradited from Bulgaria, Croatia, and Canada. Boceanu, Bolovan and six other defendants were extradited from Romania following the ratification in 2010 of an amended treaty on mutual legal assistance between Romania and the United States.
On December 5, 2012, Bolovan pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud in connection with access devices. On December 11, 2012, a jury found Boceanu guilty of the same charge, as well as one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

VALERIY V. KOUZNETSOV arrested by the FBI for bank robbery

A Chicago man suspected of robbing a Berwyn bank was apprehended Monday by alert police officers within minutes of the robbery. The arrest and a federal charge filed in connection with the robbery were announced by Cory B. Nelson, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Gary S. Shapiro, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. VALERIY V. KOUZNETSOV, 29, of Chicago, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago yesterday with one count of Bank Robbery, which is a felony offense. According to the complaint, Kouznetsov was seen sitting on a bench in front of the Charter One Bank branch located at 6201 West Cermak in Berwyn prior to its opening. The complaint alleges that Kouznetsov entered the bank just as the manager unlocked the doors to open the bank for business. The complaint states that Kouznetsov approached a teller who recognized him as the same person who had robbed the bank a little more than a month earlier. Kouznetsov allegedly told the teller he had a gun as he made his demand for money, and, after receiving cash and a dye pack from the teller, left the bank on foot. Police officers from the City of Berwyn and the Town of Cicero responded to the robbery and a short time later apprehended a man who matched the general description provided by witnesses both inside and outside the bank. The complaint states that the man taken into custody identified himself as Kouznetsov, that witnesses identified the man as the person they had seen in and in front of the bank around the time of the robbery, and that the arresting officers noted that his hands and shirt were stained with red dye. Kouznetsov appeared yesterday before United States Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys to be formally charged, and he was ordered held in federal custody pending his next court appearance, which is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Friday. If convicted of the charge filed against him, Kouznetsov faces a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. Additional information about this and other Chicago area bank robberies, including downloadable photos, can be found online at the Bandit Tracker web site, www.bandittrackerchicago.com. The public is reminded that a complaint is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Sergent RAY M. RAMIREZ Arrested by the FBI for extortion

A long-serving Chicago Police Department (CPD) sergeant was arrested this morning by FBI agents for allegedly attempting to extort a local liquor store worker. The arrest and charge were announced today by Cory B. Nelson, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the FBI, and Gary S. Shapiro, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. RAY M. RAMIREZ, 49, of the 900 block of North Wood Street in Chicago, who is assigned to the 12th Chicago Police District, was charged in a criminal complaint filed this morning in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count of Attempted Extortion under Color of Official Right, a felony offense. According to the complaint, the liquor store worker notified the FBI that Ramirez had on several occasions taken items from the store without paying, made demands of various store employees for money, and offered to sell police reports and other information to the store worker. The complaint further alleges that Ramirez made offers to speak to the local alderman on behalf of the store worker in exchange for money. The complaint describes a series of exchanges between the store worker and Ramirez in April and May of this year in which the store worker, at the direction of the FBI and as a ruse, requested criminal background information on a purported new store employee and a license plate check in exchange for money. The complaint further states that Ramirez conducted both of the requested inquiries and that he received $200 upon providing the results of each of the inquiries to the store worker. Ramirez appeared this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez, at which time he was formally charged. He was released on his own recognizance pending his next court appearance, which is scheduled to take place June 28th at 3:00 p.m. Mr. Nelson thanked the CPD’s Bureau of Internal Affairs for valuable cooperation provided during the course of the investigation and for assistance with today’s arrest. If convicted of the charge filed against him, Ramirez faces a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The public is reminded that a complaint is not evidence of guilt, and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
