Nine new charges for ATM skimmers
ONE of the two Romanian tourists charged over a string of ATM frauds on the Coffs Coast has had nine new offences added to her charge list.
Margareta Dobrica, 34, is now facing 34 charges after allegedly ripping off $22,000 for shoppers in Coffs Harbour and Grafton.
Her 26-year-old boyfriend, Nicu Lixandru, is facing 22 charges after two were withdrawn at Grafton Local Court on Monday.
Police allege that Dobrica and Lixandru operated a fraud in which one would stand near a person withdrawing money using an Eftpos or automatic teller machine in order to learn their personalised number.
Another Romanian woman implicated in the alleged fraud operation is yet to be located.
