Akop Taymizyan was sentenced today (June 28) to three years behind bars for his role in a sophisticated identity theft scheme. He and co-conspirators installed skimming devices inside gas pumps in California, Arizona, and Nevada. The devices secretly recorded gas customers' debit card and PIN numbers. The conspirators plundered 400 bank accounts for half a million dollars. Taymizyan continued to steal even after his co-conspirator went to the slammer for the crime.
