Seven Canadians residents have been charged for stealing at least $US800,000 ($A760,000) in a massive ATM skimming operation.
The seven suspects face a total of 357 charges, including the manufacturing and possession of credit card fraud devices.
They are believed to have installed the devices on ATM machines in Canada and traded card information in regions including Europe, South America, South Africa and the Caribbean.
Fraudulent credit card data was also used in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Chile and the USA.
The alleged gang leader is 34-year-old Toronto resident Svilen Marinov, who is said to have manufactured, distributed, and exported the ATM tamper devices.
Toronto residents Dimitre Kerelski, 33, and Daria Boussarova, 26, are both charged with offenses related to the possession and use of ATM tamper devices, while 35-year-old Dimitar Raykov of Pickering has been charged with the trafficking of credit card data.
Boyko Simeonov, 41, of Brampton, Ontario is listed as a participant in the gang, along with Toronto residents Aleksandar Mihov, 28, and Assen Dotchev, 29.
The Toronto Police Service has a warrant out for the arrest of another individual, along with security camera photos of 12 other persons of interest.
