PPI refunds: Card skimmer found in Scarborough

People in Scarborough could have suffered from fraudulent bank charges after a card skimmer and camera were recovered from an automated teller machine.

The devices, which can enable criminals to make credit card charges with other people's accounts, were found on an Aberdeen Walk post office on August 26th by a member of the public.

After the tools were discovered, the cash machine was powered down.

Anyone who thinks they could have been affected by the crime ought to speak to their bank and the local police force has asked anyone with information about this offence to get in touch with them.

"Cover your hand while you are typing in your pin number," investigating officer Police Constable John Coleman advised.

"Without your pin, thieves have limited opportunity to use the card," he added.

Barclays Bank noted that most people do not realise they have been a victim of card skimming until their account statement arrives.
