Mass Most Wanted has photos of a male suspect being sought for using a skimming device in Medway, Mass. and then making a withdrawal at the Citizens Bank ATM machine on Hanover Street. A card reader skimming device gives the suspect the victim’s bank card number and PIN. In one account, the suspect using the information to make cash withdrawals of approximately $10,000.

ATM users should check the card reader at bank machines to ensure a skimming device has not been illegally affixed to the reader.

  1. So, what does the skimmer LOOK like? A little quick research shows that the variety of skimmers in use, plus more sophisticated versions not yet shown online, may be much too time-consuming and tricky to detect. Perhaps the best wisdom is to continue to watch our bank transaction records closely to make sure all are legit. I have been skimmed (not in the Boston area). With a quick call, my bank restored all of the money to my account. “Quick” probably helped.
