Sofia Airport Customs Officers Seize Flash Drives Containing Credit Card Data
Customs officers at Sofia Airport have seized USB memmory sticks containing credit card data, Bulgaria's Customs Agency reported on Monday.
The portable devices were found to belong to two Bulgarian citizens arriving from a Madrid flight.
The passengers were coming from Lima and were selected under a risk analysis method in the sphere of cocaine trafficking.
In the course of the inspection and the subsequent questionings, the two passengers acted nervous and offered contradicting and mixed-up explanations about their trip, which caused the customs officers to dig deeper into the case.
Although the data stored on the flash drives was encrypted, the customs authorities were able to identify data from numerous credit cards of American and European tourists residing in Peru, as well as instructions regarding the ownership of the cards and the merthods for withdrawing themoney.
The customs officers also seized the two men's laptops.
The case has been referred to the competent authorities.
