Florida man sentenced in card skimming case

December 12, 2019

A second Florida man who planted credit card skimming devices on ATMs in Kansas was sentenced Tuesday in Kansas City, Kan., federal court to two years in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Anderson Eduardo Seijas Chavez, 30, Miami, Fla., pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud. Last week, co-defendant Carlos Alberto Campos Rojas, 29, Summerfield, Fla., was sentenced to 24 months after pleading guilty to the same count.

In his plea, Chavez admitted placing skimming devices and pinhole cameras on ATMs in Overland Park and Olathe. A corporate security officer notified local police, who did surveillance to identify a rental car that visited the ATMs on a daily basis. They followed the car back to a hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
