 WARNING  -  BEWARE OF ATM CARD SKIMMING SCAMS

Lancashire Police have issued a warning for bank customers to be extra vigilant after several “card skimming” devices were found attached to cash machines in the area.

Each of themachines were found to contain a scanning device to steal card details. They also contained a mobile phone with a video recorder, which would be used to film people entering their pin numbers. It is believed the offenders have been waiting nearby and removing the device once the details have been obtained for the card.

Please be extra careful when using a cash machine. Although these devices look professional, they are often not fitted flush to the machine. The devices are also sometimes attached with strong sticky tape so when you enter your card, the device may wobble.

For more information on skimming devices see the video on the right.

If you do have any concerns at all regarding any possible devices on cash machines, please contact the bank and Police immediately.
