Three men charged with gas pump card skimming
LOS ANGELES (3/10/10)--Prosecutors Monday charged three men suspected of stealing $2 million by using credit card skimming techniques at gas pumps in the Los Angeles area. The trio--Albert Jose Gonzalez, Josue Gustavo Albizuras and Cesar Vasquez--have pleaded not guilty to nearly two dozen criminal charges of conspiracy, grand theft, identity theft and computer access fraud (L.A. Now March 8). The three were arrested Feb. 25 after a three-year investigation by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The suspects are being held on bail of $2 million each. They are accused of using skimming devices on pay pumps at gas stations to record credit and debit card information and then downloading the information to computers and other devices to steal money, the newspaper said. Police recovered 10,000 stolen credit and debit card numbers, and computers, digital storage devices, cell phones and other equipment used to make and encode credit and debit cards. The men face a maximum of 20 years in state prison if convicted on all counts.
