CEDAR RAPIDS – Two Romanian men were sentenced to federal prison for placing card skimmers on ATMs in Iowa.

Two men who used credit card skimmers in an attempt to obtain the debit card information of 183 people were sentenced on April 23, 2021, to 10 months each in federal prison.

Stefan Daniel Busoi, age 30, and Razvan Marian Diculescu, age 29, both from Romania, received the prison terms after November 2, 2020 guilty pleas to possession of device-making equipment.

Information at sentencing showed that bank employees and law enforcement officers found credit card skimmers and pinhole cameras on three ATMs in Dubuque, Iowa, on June 17, 2020. Using traffic camera and ATM footage, officers determined that Busoi and Diculescu installed the skimmers and cameras on June 15, 2020. Officers arrested Busoi and Diculescu on June 18, 2020, at one of the ATMs when they returned for the skimmers. While the skimmers were in place, 183 people used the three ATMs. Busoi and Diculescu, who were in the United States unlawfully, possessed fraudulent Greek passports at the time of their arrest and were initially charged as John Does.

Busoi and Diculescu were sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Busoi and Disculescu were each sentenced to 10 months’ imprisonment. They must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kyndra Lundquist and investigated by the Dubuque Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations, and the United States State Department.

    “Busoi and Diculescu, who were in the United States unlawfully, possessed fraudulent Greek passports at the time of their arrest” I’ll bet they climbed over Trump’s southern border wall and their real names are Garcia and Santiago. Gotta do something with that Mexican border!!
