Man Accused of 'Jackpotting' Vegas Casino ATM

LAS VEGAS - A Venezuelan national, Jesus Ernesto Reyes Garcia, aka “Abraham Meza Cardenas,” 42, , was arraigned in federal court on Wednesday for allegedly hacking into several ATM machines at a casino in Primm resulting in the machines dispensing large sums of cash, mimicking that of a winning jackpot.

“Our office is committed to investigating and prosecuting all cybercriminals – including computer hackers who illegally ‘jackpot’ ATM machines in Nevada – as they attempt to come up with new ways to circumvent cybersecurity systems,” said United States Attorney Trutanich.

Garcia was indicted by a Grand Jury on Aug. 6 with six counts of computer fraud.

Court documents show that the US Secret Service was notified regarding a discrepancy with the ATM.  

ATM Man-in-the-Middle attacks refer to the use of a device being inserted into the ATM to effectively tricking the ATM into dispensing cash.

Garcia had been observed on video surveillance placing an unknown device behind the ATM in question the week’s prior to the US Secret Service being notified.

While at the ATM, Garcia allegedly used stolen and fraudulent credit cards to withdraw cash. Each time a $20 withdrawal was requested, $800 or $1,000 would be dispensed.

Garcia was arrested in California on a federal complaint.

A jury trial is scheduled for Oct. 7.
