(San Diego, CA)  —  Cash advance machines at several Southern Nevada casinos were used in an alleged bank scam.

Federal prosecutors in San Diego say 14 people are accused of stealing over $1 million from Citibank, using cash kiosks at a number of California and Nevada casinos.

The suspects allegedly opened bank accounts, then withdrew more money than they had deposited from the kiosks, including those at the Tropicana and Wynn Las Vegas.

Prosecutors say the suspects took advantage of a security lapse by Citibank, which has since fixed the problem.
