Washington state man & Romanian skimming gang leader pleads guilty to ATM skimming that cost banks and retailers more than $300,000. Last September, federal investigators seized card skimmers, fake ATM face plates, gift cards and electronic encoding equipment during a raid of Ismail Sali's home and found $10,000 in cash.

The Seattle case is a prime example of international skimming scams that are taking advantage of banking institutions and customers across the U.S. Attacks on payments systems have exploded in the past two years, U.S. Secret Service agent Erik Rasmussen says, whose card fraud investigations within the Cyber Intelligence Section of the Secret Service's Criminal Investigative Division stem back to 2004.
