in Are You Kiddin' Me?, General, Security by

On June 9, the US Secret Service announced the arrests of some Cuban Nationals after they allegedly used stolen data from the TJ Maxx data breach and the 2005 Polo Ralph Lauren data breach to rack up about $75 million in fraudulent credit card charges. They also had in their possession about 200,000 stolen credit card numbers.

The group of losers had partnered up with another group of losers from Eastern Europe and setup somewhat of a credit card manufacturing plant. In the plants, run by the defendants, they created full credit cards cards complete with bank and credit card logos, magnetic strips and holograms.

Here are the names of the ones arrested on June 9:

  • Julio Lopez, 30, of Hialeah, Fla.
  • Anett Villar, 26, of Hialeah, Fla.
  • Miguel Alegria, 46, of Hialeah, Fla.
  • Raynier Pupo, 22, of Miami, Fla.
  • Ariel Montero, 32, of Aventura, Fla.
  • Javier Padron-Bravo, 35, of Aventura, Fla.
