BIRMINGHAM ALABAMA – TWO INDICTED ON IDENTITY THEFT CHARGES BY FEDERAL GRAND JURY
Two people were indicted on charges of identity theft in Birmingham, Alabama. One woman, Mariana Biserova Pashova and Antonio Velikov were charged with two counts of conspiracy and attempt to defraud Regions Bank. The two allegedly attempted to attach a debit card skimming device to an ATM machine. According to court records, when the two were arrested, authorities confiscated about $50,000 in cash and over 300 hundred of fraudulent credit cards.
US Attorney, Joyce Vance, told the Birmingham News that “Having your identity stolen is a crime that seriously affects you if you become a victim,” Vance said. “We are all entitled to use an ATM machine without worrying our financial security will be compromised.” If convicted, the two could face up to 30 years in prison and at least a two-year sentence for aggravated identity theft.
