Fraud convictions fail to stop crime by illegal alien

Illegal Immigrant Bilked $10,000 from Casino Patrons

EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania say an illegal immigrant from China bilked casino patrons out of as much as $10,000 last month.

Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli says 56-year-old Shoumin Chai scammed casino patrons who used an ATM at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem last month. Surveillance footage allegedly shows Chai offering to assist two dozen people with their withdrawals and double-swiping their cards to access their accounts.

Morganelli says three people have already come forward claiming $1,100 in loses.

Chai, a New York City resident, faces more than a hundred charges. Her bail was increased to $200,000 on Wednesday.

Morganelli says Chai has a history of fraud convictions and was banned from Atlantic City casinos in May. Immigration officials say they have begun deportation proceedings.
