Very good bisness

The man in the white shirt was pumping gas into an ordinary-looking white van. But he was no ordinary customer.
For one, it took him a long time at the pump. And then there were the stolen credit cards police say he took out of his wallet. In the 17 minutes he was at the pump, he used two cards to pump 95 gallons of diesel fuel.
What happened at this gas station outside Atlanta is part of a crime wave around the country, police say. It's called "pump and dump." Thieves use stolen credit cards to get gas and then sell it at cut-rate prices to truckers and gas stations that are part of the scheme.
Authorities say it's a multi-million dollar crime with a quick payoff.

Новая американская мулька. Воры берут поддельные кредитные карты (номера можно прикупить на интернете за разумную цену) и на заправке заправляются бензином, причем у них внутри автомобилей спрятаны дополнительные баки. Потом отъезжают, уничтожают кредитки как вещдок (да и то не всегда), а "жидкую валюту" перепродают дальнобойщикам или заправкам, что находяися с ними в доле. Очень сложно отследить деньги. Мультимилионный бизнес!
