NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Macedonian citizen was extradited to the United States on Friday to face charges related to his operation of a website called Codeshop that was responsible for selling the data of thousands of credit cards from around the world.

Djevair Ametovski, 29, was arrested in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in January 2014 and was extradited from there to face charges including aggravated identity theft and wire fraud conspiracy filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.
