(WHTM) – A federal grand jury has charged a York man with bank fraud in a scheme involving an ATM skimming device.
Jeshua Paonessa-Velez, 24, who is not in custody, is charged with 12 counts of aggravated identity theft.
Investigators say from Nov. 1 to Nov. 7, Paonessa-Velez stole identification information from 12 Adams County National Bank customers by means of a skimming device he placed on an ATM.
Paonessa-Velez then loaded the information onto access devices, and made several purchases, investigators say.
All affected customers have been reimbursed for losses to their accounts.
Under federal law, the maximum penalty for the bank fraud offense is 30 years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine.
