Florida Man sentenced for Fraud Charges Involving Gas station skimmers

Yarai Fuentes Quinones, of Hialeah, Florida, was sentenced today to 36 months incarceration for his involvement with a gas station skimming fraud scheme, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Quinones, age 27, pled guilty today to one count of “Access Device Fraud-Use of Unauthorized Access Device” in June 2018.


He admitted to his role in a conspiracy spanning four states that involved using skimming devices at gas pumps, using technology to upload the account information, and creating fraudulent cards with said accounts to make unauthorized transactions at different businesses in West Virginia and elsewhere.

Quinones was also ordered to pay $61,844.66 in restitution.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Jarod J. Douglas prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Secret Service, The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, West Virginia State Police, and the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Office investigated.

Senior U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
