Macedonian extradited to face U.S. charges on selling card data

By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Macedonian citizen was extradited to the United States on Friday to face charges related to his operation of a website called Codeshop that authorities say was responsible for selling the data of thousands of credit cards from around the world. Djevair Ametovski, 29, was arrested in Slovenia in 2014 and was extradited from there to face charges including aggravated identity theft and wire fraud conspiracy contained in a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. Ametovski, who authorities say was known online as “codeshop,” “sindrom” and “sindromx,” is expected to appear in court on Saturday, prosecutors said.
