Duo Busted, Charged in Nassau-wide ATM Scam

Cops: Pair took $17,000 from the accounts of Citibank customers.

Nassau Police swooped in on two men in Hicksville Monday suspected of scamming more than $17,000 from ATM machines at various Citibanks around Nassau County.

Stefanita T. Macau, 27, and Teodora A. Paslan, 32, were charged with operating a scam by attaching electronic skimming devices to bank debit/credit cards, Nassau detectives said. In the process, the men, who have no known address, took more than $17,000 from customer bank accounts, detectives said.

The men face multiple felony counts of grand larceny after their arrest Monday at 7:30 a.m. Monday in Hicksville. They will arraigned Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

The arrests came through a combined effort between Citibank, the Nassau County Crimes Against Property Squad, the Eighth Squad and the Garden City Police Department, Nassau Police said.

Skimmers are a game changer. Is it really that hard for banks and businesses to catch?
