Head credit card skimmer sentenced to seven years

As a follow-up to a case reported in March:

The mastermind behind a credit card skimming scheme was sentenced to seven years in prison for racking up more than $800,000 on cards stolen from Washington-area diners.

Joseph A. Bush III, 29, also was ordered to pay $815,000 in restitution that prosecutors said the gang stole from more than 50 financial institutions in thousands of transactions.


Restaurants where the servers worked included M&S Grill, 701 Restaurant, Clyde’s of Gallery Place and Bowie’s Carrabba’s Italian Restaurant to steal credit card numbers from diners. Bush is the seventh person to be sent to prison in the scam.
