ATMs on Staten Island rigged for identity theft; bandits steal $500G

A band of brazen thieves ripped off hundreds of New Yorkers by rigging ATMs to steal account and password information from bank customers.

They used the pilfered info to swipe half a million dollars from their victims’ bank accounts – the latest twist in increasingly aggressive identity-theft scams, police said.

“This crew is sophisticated,” said Deputy Inspector Gregory Antonsen, head of the NYPD’s special investigations division. “And they are coming up with new ways to steal your identity every day.”
