    I found this interesting. A little too hard-core about taking advantage of people, but still interesting.

    How a Remote Town in Romania Has Become Cybercrime Central

    Three hours outside Bucharest, Romanian National Road 7 begins a gentle ascent into the foothills of the Transylvanian Alps. Meadowlands give way to crumbling houses with chickens in the front yard, laundry flapping on clotheslines. But you know you’ve arrived in the town of Râmnicu Vâlcea when you see the Mercedes-Benz dealership.

    It is very nice Cyrus, the article is absolutely rubbish....I have quite a lot of friends from that town and indeed, many of them are doing nasty stuff online, however Romania is really nice. :)

    The Mercedes-Benz dealership has almost no sales, the fancy cars you see in Valcea are 90% second-hand cars and so on, there are a lot to be commented on that crap article.

    Do not judge a country over a few scammers....

    I don't know much about Romania but I think it's a beautiful country, depending on where you go of course. It's on my list to visit some day. A long time ago I had a girlfriend from there and I must say that Romania has some beautiful women.

    Bullshit, that article is far from the truth.

    Each country or city has pro's and con's, good and bad etc. Judging the many considering the few is just wrong.

    RO isn't the best country but it certainly isn't the worst, enough to say girls are amazing.

    "R.M. is known for its hackers that broke into the NASA or CIA database...which are far more intelligent actions that what you describe in your article. And those hackers are now working in the USA. " :cheer:
