Six arrested for worldwide ATM robbery

Written by Nick Farrell



Nicked $45 million

Six people have been arrested for participating in a worldwide ATM robbery from two Middle East banks. Five men and one woman, all from New York City were accused of being members of a global cybercrime organization that stole Mastercard debit-card information.

The six arrested were money mules who withdrew $2.8 million from more than 140 ATMs in New York. The scam started when hackers stole debit card data from the National Bank of Ras Al-Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates and Bank Muscat in Oman in two attacks in December 2012 and February 2013. Then cells in more than 20 countries withdrew $5 million between December 21 and December 22 and $40 million between February 19 and February 20.

Five of the defendants arrested included Anthony Diaz, 24; Saul Franjul, 23; Saul Genao, 24; Jaindhi Polanco, 29; and Jose Angeley Valerio, 25 pleaded not guilty in federal court in Brooklyn to conspiracy to commit access device fraud. A sixth defendant, Franklyn Ferriera, is expected to be in court on Tuesday. Each faces up to 7 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
