A ROMANIAN has been accused of setting up a counterfeit credit card factory in his home and cloning more than 160 cards.

Andre Baloiu, 23, of Woolwich Road, Woolwich, was remanded in custody after he was charged with two counts of fraud and one count of money laundering at Woolwich Magistrates' Court, last Thursday.

Police swooped down on the Baloiu last Wednesday after they got calls from people who reported him acting suspiciously by a cash machine near Woolwich Road.

He was found carrying £1,400 in cash and two small cameras, the size of a needle, which record people's pin numbers, when they are put above the key board.

In his flat, police found more than 160 cloned cards.

A woman was also arrested but later released without charge.

Baloiu will next appear at Woolwich Crown Court at a date to be set.
