The gang was uncovered through an earlier investigation that involved the Secret Service's Miami and Nashville field offices. That probe targeted an individual named Julio Lopez, who used the screen name "Blinky" to traffic in counterfeit credit cards and stolen IDs for years over the Internet.

The agency alleged that the gang sent "large amounts" of money using E-gold accounts to cybercriminals in eastern Europe in exchange for "tens of thousands" of stolen credit card numbers. The numbers were then used to create counterfeit cards in several "plants" throughout the state. [...]
