New York officials said alleged members of an identity theft ring used an electronic encoder and other tools inside a Manhattan hotel room to steal money from nearly 400 people who used credit and debit cards at a Mesquite gas station.
The four suspects are accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the victims.
Garegin Spartalyan, 40, Aram Martirosian, 34, Hayk Dzhandzhapanyan, 40, and Davit Kudugulyan, 42, were charged this week in New York in a 405-count indictment with various offenses including grand larceny and possession of stolen property, officials said.

At least 2 of these men are associated with a company called “Unique Home Health Care”.
Credit card data can be stolen with a wave and an app
I think Armenian. When you see "ian" or "yan" at the end of name, it is Armenian.
I could be wrong...WAG!
“Garegin Spartalyan, 40, Aram Martirosian, 34, Hayk Dzhandzhapanyan, 40, and Davit Kudugulyan, 42”, Darn Amish are at it Yet AGAIN!
You know like, “Kardashian”.
I live in Mesquite and unfortunately one of the numbers they got was mine. Luckily, Bank of Amigos caught it before they could use it. I did have to get a new card.
And before Las Vegas and California, these financial adventurers were from????????
... just doing the work Americans will not do!
Got a call one time from Citibank asking if I had bought a PC at dell. I said, no. They told me my card had been used to buy it and after I told them it was in my possession, they told me to destroy it and they would send me a new one. I asked what were the details here as I was an LEO for NY. Told me it appeared a group was operating in concert with someone in Dell using blocks of numbers of cards and then shipping purloined PCs to Brooklyn. I said I have an Idea, put me in a UPS outfit and let me deliver the PC to the place in Brooklyn so we can arrest the perps. After a few seconds the guy on the phone said, I don’t think the bank could withstand the liability that would bring to them given how upset you sound. Even after I promised to only hit the perps, they said no thank you.
Did their families come in on refugee status too?
how about we turn these clowns over to the people they stole from, make the results of the reunion VERY public, include flogging of the lawyers rushing to their defense, after the party, mail the remaining pieces of the thieves home to their families.
Good story! You are just too practical. Unfortunately, banks are run by lawyers and politicians.
“Told me it appeared a group was operating in concert with someone in Dell using blocks of numbers of cards and then shipping purloined PCs to Brooklyn.”
I watched one of those investigative shows where they showed people who received stolen items at their home and would send them on to someone else they never met (for money). While the enablers claimed to be innocent and ignorant, I would have no problem executing them along with the masterminds; nobody could be that stupid - it stinks to high heaven.
The Dallas shooter who killed 5 cops was a paid caregiver of his brother through a home care business....he too was from Mesquite. Wonder if there is a link?
In 2013 an Iraqi-born guy was arrested for supporting Syrian terrorists, etc...in Mesquite.
