BPD: 2 charged with ATM fraud scheme

Posted: Updated:

Two men are in jail for trying to scam customers at a Burlington area ATM machine.

It happened back around Halloween at the New England Federal Credit Union branch on Bank Street.  The victims told police the scammers approached them at the ATM and gave them a sob story about needing cash in exchange for a personal check. The victims withdrew money for the men, but when they deposited their checks -- they were fake.

Police Saturday arrested Charles Cobb, 21 and Christopher Mitchell, 18, on multiple fraud-related charges.  They are due in court Monday.
