CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal grand jury in Chattanooga has indicted two Georgia men on charges they used counterfeit ATM cards to steal about $72,000 from bank customers.
According to the U.S. attorney's office, 28-year-old Chris Dragiev of Kennesaw and 29-year-old Atanas G. Georgiev of Atlanta are accused of using the false ATM cards, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.
Prosecutors said the two used a "skimmer" to obtain bank account numbers and PIN numbers of Regions Bank customers last September and October in East Ridge, Tenn. Investigators said the two were found with 39 counterfeit ATM cards last October.
