“I was trying to deposit a check and it wouldn’t let me put it in, and I was trying to take out money and it wouldn’t let me do it either,” one customer told WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith.
Quincy Credit Union president Stewart Steele told WBZ-TV an estimated 670 accounts were impacted. Steele said he believes skimmers may have been placed on the ATM machines. It’s unclear how much money was taken.
“Hopefully they catch the person who’s doing it and settle it ya know?” another customer told WBZ-TV. ” I wanna check when I go home on the computer and see what’s wrong hopefully they catch the culprit and see what happens.”READ MORE: Police Arrest Woman After Service Dog Stolen From New Hampshire Walmart

“It’s scary because it’s all your money,” another credit union customer said. “Everyone’s supposed to trust the bank.”
