New Jersey Pinoy sentenced for global cybercrime operation

A New Jersey federal court sentenced 31-year-old Pinoy, Angelo Virtucio, with 63 months in prison for running a global cybercrime ring using stolen information — which reports say netted Virtucio $9 million.

Court documents say Virtucio purchased stolen credit and debit information from other cybercriminals, and encoded the data onto counterfeit cards for cashers to use.

Virtucio, who is from Quezon City, was first arrested in Florida in January 2015, and was then extradited to the district of New Jersey, where he eventually pleaded guilty to the cashing operation in July  2016.

Virtucio was also sentenced to two years of supervised release.
