18 November 2009  |  6132 views  |  0 ATM

A Romanian national has pleaded guilty to stealing $150,000 from Bank of America customer accounts in an ATM card-skimming scam.

Victor Vasile Constantin perpetrated the fraud by attaching a small camera and a scanning device on BofA cash machines in South Norwalk, Greenwich and Ridgefield branch offices.

The scheme netted Constantin and an unidentified accomplice $150,000 over a three-month period.

The 23-year old Romanian national entered a plea-bargain agreement under which he will not appeal his sentence if it is no more than 57 months in prison. He faces sentencing in February.
