Kara Reeder

Two Romanians are facing charges in the United States in connection with a massive phishing scam, reports Computerworld. Petru Belbita and Cornel Tonita allegedly set up fake phishing sites to steal user names and passwords from the Web customers of financial institutions such as Citibank and Wells Fargo.


Once the men had the information they were after, they would manufacture fake ATM cards, which they would hand to "runners" who would go from ATM to ATM withdrawing money.


The two men could face a 30-year prison sentence.
