Secret Service Says No Connection Between Eastside ATM Skimming, Capitol Hill Card Fraud

The agents leading the Secret Service’s Electronic Crimes Task Force in Seattle say there is “no correlation” between an Eastside ATM skimming case and the Great Capitol Hill Credit Card Swindle of 2010.

The agent also tells CapitolHillSeattle.com that there are no new developments or updates in the Seattle case and that the investigation is ongoing.

Seattle office has been busy in the area. In addition to identifying breach points in the Capitol Hill situation, federal agents worked with law enforcement on the Eastside to stake out Newcastle, Woodinville and Renton ATMs to capture a group using “skimming” technology to steal bank card information. Three men were busted in the stakeouts.
