Man pleads guilty to using skimmer on credit cards

TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A Kansas man has pleaded guilty to stealing credit card information while he worked at a Taco Bell in Belton, Missouri.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a news release that 32-year-old Yao Vignon Kpade, of Overland Park, Kansas, pleaded guilty Monday to electronic device fraud.

He admitted that he used a device called a credit card skimmer to obtain information from customers’ credit cards. He encoded the stolen information onto bank cards in his name and used the cards for personal purchases.

Kpade agreed to pay a total of $2,465 in restitution to two banks and to forfeit seized property including computers, electronic tablets and cell phones.

He will be sentenced March 2.
