Bulgarian Customs Officers "Save" Millions of Dollars in Sofia Airport Bust
Customs officers at Sofia Airport have impounded five skimming devices used for stealing credit card data, Bulgaria’s National Customs Agency announced.
The machines, concealed in a couriered parcel containing a DVD player, arrived from Indonesia.
After the customs officers had dismantled the player, they discovered five devices, two panels with micro-cameras attached to them and a flash memory card with credit card details.
Further examination showed that the devices had been in use for 20 days and contained pin codes and other data.
Experts say that calculating the amount “saved” will take some time, but it probably amounts to millions of dollars.
