A former owner of a Subway franchise used software from his new job to access the computer systems of Subway restaurants.  The former owner sold point-of-sale software to Subway restaurants across the country and then worked with an accomplice to remotely hack into at least 13 Subway point-of-sale systems.  The fraud began in 2011.  Fraudulent Subway gift cards totaling at least $40,000 were created.  Two of the California participants were indicted on March 6.
