Bulgarian Duo Implicated in International Credit Card Scam

Jeorgi Petrov

Aptula’s attorney says that they are in communication with the Belize Bank to settle the matter. The two Bulgarians allegedly visited the Albert and North Front Streets ATMs of the bank to conduct the fraudulent transactions. Aptula also pleaded not guilty to theft.

“Now sir, we noticed in the courtroom that you indicated to the judge that you wanted an early adjourned date for you are in negotiations right now with the managers of Belize Bank. Are you able to disclose anything on that?”


Oscar Selgado

“Well no, because we don’t want to jeopardize the good fate and the good gesture that the Belize Bank has extended to us in terms of sitting down and hearing us on this. They have not offered anything to us; we are making an offer to them. I will not say what the offer is.”
