NY: Thieves raid accounts of Staten Island bank

Barton Horowitz of the Staten Island Advance reports:

An ATM security breach at SI Bank & Trust’s Oakwood branch that went undetected for more than a month is under investigation by the FBI. Apparently, bank officials were not aware of the crime until the stealth thieves began cashing in on the stolen data.

… Fifty of the bank’s customers were directly affected by the theft, and the bank made good the approximately $53,000 in total that was pilfered from their accounts, Armstrong said.
