MN: Metro restaurant workers indicted in credit card scam

Bill McAuliffe reports:

Three Twin Cities restaurant workers and four alleged accomplices are facing federal bank fraud charges of capturing the credit card information of local diners and using it to make at least $150,000 in purchases for themselves.

The seven were charged by an indictment unsealed Tuesday in federal district court in St. Paul. They are Demetrius Darnell Thomas, 35, and Kanetra Danielle Range, 31, of Rogers; Nancia Raquel Range, 34, and Makiesha Edwina Mayo, 28, of St. Paul; Anthony Curry, 23, of Plymouth; Brandon Conique Scott, 27, of Eagan, and Brian Craig Davis, 46, of Chaska.

According to the U.S. attorney’s office, Curry, Mayo and Scott worked in Twin Cities restaurants and “skimmed” customers’ credit card information.
