US Law Enforcement Busts Romanian Online Crime Operation

US Law Enforcement Busts Romanian Online Crime Operation | #TpromoCom #Children #Police #SocialMedia | Twelve members of 20-person group extradited to US to face charges related to theft of millions via fake ads other scams.

US and international law enforcement authorities have dismantled a group operating mostly out of Romania that over the past five years allegedly stole millions of dollars from American citizens using false advertisements for goods online.

Twenty people, including 15 Romanians and 1 Bulgarian national, have been indicted for their roles in the operation. Twelve of the foreign nationals have been extradited to the US and are set to face trial later this year. The arrests stem from a 24-count indictment that a federal grand jury in Kentucky returned in July 2018.

This is the second win against online crime in recent weeks for US law enforcement and their counterparts in other countries. In January, the government announced it had taken down xDedic, one of the Internet’s largest sites for stolen goods.

California bar shooting leaves 12 dead, including sheriff’s sergeant

California bar shooting leaves 12 dead, including sheriff’s sergeant | #TpromoCom #Homicide #Shooting #Media #sensationalize | A gunman opened fire overnight in a Southern California bar and country music venue. The Ventura County sheriff said the bar was crowded with more than 100 people, many of them college students. (please scroll)

The gunman, who hasn’t been identified, killed 12 people, including a sheriff’s sergeant who responded to the gunfire. Police later found the shooter dead inside the bar, possibly from a self-inflicted wound.

“There was a day when the news media showed great restraint in publicizing horrible mass shootings like this, which helped to prevent copycat occurrences,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist with TpromoCom of Canton, Ohio. “Perhaps it’s time to tone down the rhetoric and stop glorifying all the blood and gore at our children’s expense so we can slow the emergence of nut cases.” 

In the past, responsible media did not sensationalize these kinds of events in order to NOT attract nut cases. Now, today, it’s a political issue that the Left apparently is committed to sensationalize every chance they get. While we’d like to think that they do this for rating purposes, one has to wonder why they put ranking ahead of the lives of so many children.

“So many security experts on both sides of the isle are afraid to really say what’s going on in the news media. I’m not afraid to voice what everyone knows deep down inside their soul,” says Colombo. “The media is fueling the political fires surrounding the second amendment by sensationalizing these sad, murderous events. In every case it draws out the nut cases who want the entire world to remember their sick, sorry name.”

Editor’s Note: The Sheriff’s list is commonly used among crime prevention experts. There’s some good ones there for sure, but the one that was not included that is probably the most important is this, “Be aware of your immediate surroundings at all times.” You should be aware of those around you, what they are doing, and pay particular attention to instinct–if you feel in danger, move now!  –Al Colombo
