    rolex Six Romanians and one Albanian have been indicted on allegations
    that they operated a multimillion-dollar cyber fraud scheme selling
    nonexistent cars, boats and other high-value items through eBay and
    other sites.replica rolex Interpol has issued "red notices" seeking assistance
    apprehending the fugitives, one of whom was arrested in 2010 but
    managed to give authorities the slip after he walked out of a
    Romanian courthouse over a bureaucratic issue.<a href="">rolex datejust replica</a> According to the indictment (.pdf), unsealed today in the Eastern
    District of New York, leader Nicolae Popescu is wanted, along with
    fellow Romanians Daniel Alexe, Dmitru Daniel Bosogioiu, Ovidiu
    Cristea, and Dragomir Razvan and an Albanian national named Fabjan
    Meme. Also listed in the indictment is a defendant who goes by the
    names "George Skyper" and "Tudor Barbu Lautaru." fake rolex watches According to authorities, the defendants posted advertisements
    on eBay,,, and for cars,
    motorcycles, and boats -- priced between $10,000 (£6,000) to
    $45,000 (£27,000) -- and sent buyers fraudulent certificates of
    title and other documentation to convince them that the vehicle
    transactions were legitimate.fake rolex watches In some cases, they posed as nonexistent auto dealers in the US,

    bank accounts to receive payments from buyers and emailed the
    buyers transaction notices and invoices, purporting to come from
    Amazon Payments, PayPal, and other online payment services.The gang operated since at least 2006. Police have identified
    approximately 800 victims who sent money for non-existent Rolex
    watches, cars, yachts, private airplanes and other luxury goods.
    Buyers from around the world lost approximately $1 million
    (£616,000) after they sent money for winning auctions, but never
    received goods.
    Popescu, the 32-year-old alleged ringleader, had been previously
    detained under a so-called preventive arrest. Under Romanian law,
    defendants can be held for up to 29 days while an investigation is
    underway if authorities prove to the court that they need to hold
    the suspect while evidence is examined. But while the court was
    busy ruling on an extended arrest for the other suspects, Popescu
    walked out of the courthouse. The deadline for his initial arrest
    had passed, and because the court had not yet ruled on his extended
    detention, he was allowed to leave. This story originally apeared on
