  • News - SparkFun Gets a Subpoena | about 2 years ago

    This actually happened to us as well 2-3 years ago, not that we got this paper, but the Swedish police called us since they had a skimming device where there was a bluetooth module from a company we represented, so they found that we were a distributor in Sweden. There was also other parts and I asked if they could e-mail me a photo of the device. They did, turned out that the card reader was connected to a serial bluetooth module so they could sit at a distance and get the info. We sell quite a few of these bluetooth modules to that city, but when I contacted the manufacturer of these bluetooth modules since I saw the serial number on the device at the photo, the manufacturer could tell me it wasn’t sold by us (they keep track on serial numbers for warranty issues), instead sold by their US distributor. So there was no more discussions and we were of the hook. And I guess the people who does this is smart as well, not buying parts locally that could easily be tracked, they were. Dumb of them though not to remove such things as brand and serial number, they was not that smart. Not sure if they cought them though.
