Houston man arrested, charged with white-collar card-skimming

Law enforcement officials say that a credit card skimmer can be virtually undetectable. The skimmers are designed to look like an ordinary part of an ATM machine or gas station pump, but when you stick your credit card into the device, it records the card's data to be downloaded later for illegal purchases or cash withdrawals.

When federal investigators come knocking

Before federal prosecutors hand down an indictment, investigators often contact a person who is under suspicion of a federal crime. FBI agents or other federal officials, such as agents from the IRS Criminal Investigations Division, regularly seek statements from potential witnesses and individuals who are suspected of a federal offense. There are a variety of ways federal investigators may reach out to a suspect, including in person, over the phone or via subpoena.
