    I'm pretty sure it was a gang of Romanians who hit Melbourne last year... I heard that Australia is one of the only western countries that still uses the magnetic strip as apposed to using the chip in the ATM machines... and this makes us vulnerable to skimmers

    Gives Romanians a bad name too when it's usually Gypsies often from Eastern Europe including Romania. Romanians think of them as a separate race...
