Card Skimming Scheme at Tulsa McDonald’s Broken Up

TULSA, Okla.- A card skimmer was used at a Tulsa, Oklahoma McDonalds to steal the debit and credit card information of hundreds of victims. Godlive Jonathan Tetty-Mensah, 10, of Ghana, pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft in connection to the credit card skimming which took place from August 2011 until October 2011. Three other men were also indicted in connection with the incident. Daniel Yaw Jefferson, 21, Stanjulfran Geovester Mensah, 21 and Bismark Baah, 20, were accused in an April 3 indictment.

Tetty-Mensah told police that he and Daniel Jefferson approached an individual who worked at the McDonalds, with the initials H.J. , and asked him to install the skimmer. They would later meet with him to download the credit and debit card information to a laptop. They then used that information to create counterfeit credit and debit cards. H.J. was given $600, two laptops, and a video game system for helping with the scheme. Tetty-Mensah could face up to seven years in prison.
