Two Charged In Gas Station Card-Skimming Scheme

Two individuals face federal charges for skimming debit card information from gas station pumps across multiple states.

Two people have been charged in a multi-state scheme to defraud victims and steal bank and credit union account information, reports the Department of Justice. A federal grand jury charged Eunises Llorca-Menses of Florida, and Reiner Perez-Rives of Texas, with wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft.

Court documents state the two employed skimming devices, which can be installed on gas pumps and record credit/debit card numbers and PINs without victims' knowledge. They allegedly rented vehicles and traveled across Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, and Virginia, visiting gas stations and installing devices along the way.

At the time of their arrest, law enforcement found the two with 39 credit/debit cards that had been re-encoded with stolen numbers, and 315 types of gift cards.

It's kind of sad because at any moment, it's going to be computer systems that will be the cause for our demise.

Hi
It's scary to think about how reliant people are on their credit and cashless payment methods that identity theft can become so rampant and easy for hackers. We need to be more vigilant when we are checking our statements to ensure that we catch the lapse in security when it happens!
