Milton: Card Skimming Device Found

Cambridgeshire Police are warning people in Milton to be vigilant, after a card-skimming device was discovered inside an ATM in the village.

There are reports of customers becoming suspicious after a cash machine at Tesco made strange noises.

Some were also unable to withdraw their crash.

The remains of a card-skimming device were then confiscated by officers on the 24 July.

According to Police, a man and a woman in a silver Skoda Octavia were spotted acting suspiciously in the area.

Crime Reduction Officer Rachel Carr said: "If you are not happy with the ATM and feel it may have been tampered with, go inside the store or building and ask staff to contact police.

We would prefer to come and investigate, than to miss the opportunity and someone is defrauded as a result.

Look out for anything that seems out of place: if there are scratches, or if the card holder is loose.

Devices are placed on machines for a short time, and if you move, or tap it, it's likely to come off."

People who are concerned they may have been affected by card skimming are being advised to check their bank statements and report any unusual activity.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
