A man who used a cash machine skimming device to get hold of the details of thousands of bank cards in Somerset and Devon, has today walked free from court.
Leonid Rotaru, who lives in Bridgwater, said he was the "bottom end of an operation run by big boys he didn`t know in London".
When police searched his car and home they found the pin numbers of 9,000 cards, and say it could have led to the theft of more than £3 million.
