Watch Out for ATM Tampering

Boulder Dam Credit Union ATM Card

Hey Peeps –

I saw this advisory put out by the Boulder Dam Credit Union and felt I should pass it along.  Note that this has not happened at our credit union … but it’s something to be on the lookout for.  And be sure to report it to whatever financial institution that operates that ATM if you think something might be fishy, yeah?

Over the past several weeks we became aware that other Credit Unions’ members have fallen victim to skimming devices placed on their ATMs overnight.  These skimming devices are designed to fit over the ATM’s card insertion slot and are used to capture the individual’s magnetic strip information as well as the PIN number entered by the customer.  Obviously with this information, the perpetrators can create a duplicate card within minutes and drain an account shortly thereafter.

In order to attach these devices, the crooks actually have to “chip” away at the exterior of the ATM machine (or other point-of-sale machines) to make the device fit.  On ATMs that have been sabotaged, scratch marks were fairly obvious, yet the members chose to use the machine anyway.  While we like to think that our ATMs are immune, and tampering would be obvious to most members, please always be alert when using any ATM.  If there is any evidence of tampering or “temporary” changes to the machine, don’t use it!
