Oshkosh police are warning bank customers to be aware after a card skimming device was discovered at a local ATM.
On Wednesday, three people reported unauthorized transactions on their accounts. Each person had used an ATM in the 1600-block of West 20th Avenue over the past weekend. Police are not releasing the specific location of where the device was found.
Skimming devices are attached to the bank card slot of the ATM. When customers swipe their cards, the skimmer reads the magnetic strip.
That information is then used by the criminals to access accounts.
If you notice anything strange or out of the usual at your ATM, particularly if something looks unusual about the card slot, do not swipe your card. Instead, report it to your bank and police.
Anyone with information about this local skimming case is asked to call Oshkosh police at (920) 236-5700. You can also remain anonymous by contacting Winnebago Countywide CrimeStoppers at (920) 231-8477, online at www.winnebagocrimestoppers.org, or by texting IGOTYA and your tip to 274637.
