In Portugal, two men were arrested this summer for offenses of hacking on ATMs in our country. The Antwerp public prosecutor’s office announced this on Monday. The two will be extradited in November so that they can be tried in Belgium.
The investigation is currently focusing on six similar events that took place in June and July. ATMs were hit in succession in Borsbeek, Ranst, Kortrijk, Roeselare, Ingelmunster and Destelbergen. Each time the perpetrators proceeded in the same way. They first removed the front panel or screen of the ATM, after which they connected a device to the machine via the cabling that could hack the system. That device made sure that the euro notes literally rolled out of the machine.
The investigators soon found the perpetrators, a gang that is said to consist mainly of Romanians and which appears to be active throughout Europe. On July 25, two men aged 32 and 39 were arrested in Portugal, where they also committed offenses. The prosecutor’s office has only now announced the arrest.
