2 men indicted by federal grand jury for using skimming device at Chesterfield bank

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A federal grand jury indicted two Estonian men this week for using a skimming device to steal debit and credit card information at a Chesterfield bank. It happened at the Bank of America on Buford Road.

Police say for five months, two men had a scheme and may have stolen the information of up to 40 people in Richmond. Kirill Korotkov, 21, and Andrei Tursk, 27, were indicted Tuesday on six counts, including bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

They're accused of placing a skimmer on the ATM. It secretly captured the information stored on the magnetic strip of the cards. Federal authorities also claim the men had a camera set up to steal the personal identification numbers entered by the customers.

The Secret Service alleges the scheme hit SunTrust, Bank of America and state department credit union banks in Maryland and Virginia.

Chesterfield Police made the initial arrest and seized $32,000 in cash from Korotkov's and Tursk's Fairfax apartment along with ATM skimmer hardware, computers and 94 magnetic-strip cards.

At the time of the arrests, the bank asked people to watch their accounts closely to make sure there are no suspicious charges. It can take months for the full impact of these type of crimes to be fully realized.

No court date has been set for Korotkov and Tursk.
