$100K Stolen From Martha’s Vineyard Bank Customers Through ATM Scam

EDGARTOWN (CBS) — Skimming devices at two Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank automatic teller machines were allegedly used to steal thousands of dollars.

Police say $100,000 was stolen from 90 customers using fake ATM cards on Broadway in New York, Chicago and Indianapolis, over the Labor Day weekend.

The ATM skimming devices are implanted into the ATM machine to steal customer information and pin numbers.

The suspects then make duplicate cards to take money out of other ATMs.

Police say some of the customers noticed the fraudulent activity on their own and others were alerted by the bank.

The customers who lost money have all been reimbursed.

Police are urging customers to check their bank accounts to make sure there are no strange withdrawals or charges.
