Taise Braganca Moscon, age 26, an illegal alien from Brazil, was sentenced Wednesday by United States District Judge Sul Ozerden to serve 13 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and to pay $6,450.00 in restitution to a victim, for a fraud in connection with access devices.

On December 7, 2017, Moscon and two co-defendants were stopped in a Lincoln Navigator with Florida tags after being at a Keesler Federal Credit Union Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) on Automall Parkway in D’Iberville, Mississippi. The ATM was found to have a skimmer on it and had been altered with the top flap privacy shield being cut off so a camera placed above could observe the ATM keypad where customers enter their account PIN numbers. A search of the Lincoln Navigator resulted in the finding of access device equipment, to include but not limited to, glue, black electrical and double-sided tape and box cutters, credit cards in alias names, a card with sandpaper attached to the card, and other credit cards, gift cards, and a micro SD card.

Co-Defendants Claudio Fontes Ferreira, age 30, of Deerfield Beach, Florida, and Rodrigo D. Ferrareze, age 37, of Delray Beach, Florida, pled guilty on February 20, 2018, to one count of knowingly and with intent to defraud, producing, trafficking in, having control or custody of, and possessing device-making equipment. Ferrareze is scheduled to be sentenced on June 12, 2018, and Ferreira is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, 2018.
