Rampant Skimming at South Florida ATMs

South Florida reports on rampant skimming at ATMs there.

Police here investigating damage to a Publix ATM machine found evidence of two white males installing and retrieving "skimming" devices that allow them to drain the bank accounts of ATM users.

On Monday, Port St. Lucie Police went to Publix at 9100 S. US Highway 1. The ATM had a hole drilled into the bottom of the card reader. With no evidence of a skimming device but more reports of similar damage to other ATMS, they worked with Publix security officials to review surveillance video from Vero Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Boynton Beach locations. The videos show two white males installing what appeared to be bank card skimming devices. Later, they return to retrieve the devices containing users' ATM card info.
