Italian and Romanian authorities have arrested fourteen suspects pursuant to a Europol investigation for their alleged roles in a transnational ring engaged in sex trafficking and ATM theft as reported by Forbes: "gang members used a code language, with words only shown via a pizzino held up to the camera, according to Europol." Although Skype "is difficult to wiretap (possibly impossible, Microsoft has claimed in the past)" and "video conversations aren't recorded by the tech giant" which make "any subpoena . . . unfruitful," law enforcement otherwise was "snooping on standard telephone lines, tracking suspects on the streets of Milan and gathering open source intelligence from online profiles" which led to the bust.
