Card skimmer found at local ATM

The Local Reporter

A bank service technician discovered a card skimmer during routine maintenance on Tuesday, Jan. 23. The card skimmer was disguised as part of a Bank of America ATM at Chatham Crossing shopping center, 11312 US15-501 N, Chapel Hill.

Randall Rigsbee, Public Information Officer of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office,  provided TLR with the report. While it is unknown how long the device may have been attached to the ATM, it could have been on the ATM since it was previously serviced on Friday, January 19. If you’ve used the ATM recently, contact your bank for guidance.

Contact the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office at 919-542-2911 if you suspect fraudulent activity.
