Prosecutors have filed charges against two men believed to have defrauded hundreds of BECU members by "skimming" debit cards at
Seattle-area ATMs. Having filed ID theft-related charges against the men, King County prosecutors contend Seattle resident Claudiu
Flaviu Tudor and Mihai Podaru stole the account information of hundreds of BECU users during a sophisticated scheme that saw cameras
and debit card skimmers attached to a Renton ATM.
For short periods over four days in September, the thieves attached a credit card skimmer to a BECU ATM at 4250 N.E. Fourth St. in
Renton, Carroll told the court. At least 55 BECU members who used the ATM while the skimmer was in place have since experienced
fraud on their accounts; the bank has lost $170,442 due to fraud on those accounts.
The thieves, Carroll continued, also had placed a camera over the ATM PIN pad to capture the personal identification numbers of
those using the machine.
