Financial Crimes and Crime Scene detectives responded to collect the devices. The investigation continues.
To help protect yourself from credit card fraud, detectives recommend:
- Regularly checking your financial statement for any unusual or fraudulent charges and report them to the card company immediately.
- Use credit cards to make purchases versus debit cards, as it can be more difficult to have your bank funds reimbursed.
- Inspect all credit cards readers prior to sliding your card. You may not be able to see a skimming device but look for pry marks, scratches or other signs of tampering. Report suspicious activity to police.
- If you feel you’ve been victimized by Skimming/Scammers, report it to police online through the Financial Crimes Online Reporting (FiCOR) system
