Bulgarian brothers charged with installing skimmers at Chase and Citibank

Bruce Golding reports:

Two brothers have been charged with scamming more than $1 million by installing electronic skimmers and hidden cameras on Chase and Citibank ATMs.

Radostin and Ulian Paralingov, from Bulgaria, used information gleaned from the devices to create duplicate bank cards and crack PIN codes, according to the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office.

Another suspect, Radostin Paralingov, 19, was nabbed by the FBI in Las Vegas on Monday. Ulian Paralingov, 27, remains at large.

I don’t see any formal press release up on the U.S. Attorney’s site yet, so we will probably learn more about this one.
