Thief empties Hawaii ATMs snags IDs of 900 people
HONOLULU (1/3/08)--Police in several states are looking for a man responsible for an identity theft scheme with more than 900 victims nationwide and $88,000 stolen from ATMs in Oahu, Hawaii, including that of a credit union. All the victims have accounts with Washington Mutual Bank. Police suspect he acquires victims' personal information, uses a cell phone to call the bank and change their personal identification numbers (PINs), and requests duplicate cards (KGMB9.com Dec. 27 and MSNBC.com Jan. 2). The thief used an ATM at Hawaii Central CU 27 times in three minutes to drain the machine of its cash, police said. He used a different ATM card for each transaction. The man was in Hawaii from Oct. 8 through Oct. 29. He repeated the thefts in Las Vegas and New York, said police. Police believe he is part of a larger network.
