— Federal authorities have charged two men with using skimmer devices on automated teller machines in Fayetteville to obtain people's financial information.

Sergei Fowler Marchant and Nikolay Andreyevich Volosov were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

According to a federal indictment, the men are accused of installing cameras and skimming devices on at least three ATMs to read the account information off debit cards. They obtained information on about 60 accounts from May to July 2009, and they then created counterfeit cards for their own use, the indictment states.
