Police charge a dozen men in New Jersey ATM skimming scheme
Federal authorities say a dozen men have been charged for their roles in an ATM skimming scheme that targeted victims in New Jersey.
Authorities say the suspects used electronic card-reading devices and pinhole cameras placed on ATM machines to illegally obtain sensitive customer information such as PIN numbers.
The ring would then take the information and transfer the data to new cards that were used to make withdrawals.
Authorities believe the group took more than $428,000 from various Bank of America branches between March 2015 and July. Some PNC accounts were also compromised.
The suspects were arrested Wednesday and charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Authorities are still searching for one man.
