3 accused of stealing diners’ credit card IDs

Robert Moran reports:

Three Philadelphia men were indicted yesterday on charges of illegally using the credit and debit cards of customers of two city restaurants by recruiting servers and other workers to steal their account information and then using it to create false – but functioning – cards.

According to the federal grand jury indictment, the fraud and identity-theft ring targeted other restaurants and businesses in addition to the two named: T.G.I. Friday’s, 4000 City Ave., and Ruby Tuesday, 16th and Chestnut Streets.
