Victim numbers continue to climb in EVG Quality breach

From today’s Los Angeles Times:

Police have identified 380 victims of credit or debit card fraud at a Sierra Madre gas station with losses exceeding $109,000, Police Chief Marilyn Diaz said Monday.


“The fraudulent charges arising from credit and debit cards used at the EVG station are showing up both as EVG charges and charges to other retail establishments, both in California and out of state,” Diaz said. “Anyone who has used a credit or debit card at EVG in the past 12 months should report any fraudulent charges to Sierra Madre police.”

Police said 75% of the victims are residents of the foothill community who had used cards at the station since July. Investigators are seeking to question station owner Evgeny K. Yakimenko, who has not been seen since the station closed.
