17 charged in international ATM scheme

CHICAGO (AP) — Federal officials say 17 people have been charged in connection with an international ATM fraud scheme.

Prosecutors announced Wednesday that 13 defendants were arrested Tuesday in Chicago and two were arrested in Bulgaria. They are accused of stealing ATM and debit card information in Europe and using that information to withdraw money from victims' accounts in the Chicago area.

Prosecutors say the wire fraud and money laundering scheme involves hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The charges were brought in a 29-count indictment on March 12. The indictment was unsealed after the arrests.
