APPLE VALLEY, Ca. – A card skimming device was located on a drive-up ATM machine at an Apple Valley Bank of America.
The card skimming device was located by an employee at the Bank of America located in the 21000 block of State Highway 18 in the Town of Apple Valley. When the device was located, the bank staff called the Apple Valley Police Department, who responded to the bank. They learned that the card skimming device was located at the drive-up ATM on the east side of the building.
“We want to remind the public before using any ATM, look for obvious signs of tampering, such as a loose credit card reader or a reader that sticks out past the panel,” said Apple Valley Police Department Spokeswoman Jackie Alban. “Ensure the ATMs security seal is still intact, and the PIN Pad does not appear thicker than usual.”
This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy D. Vallejo at the Apple Valley Police Department at (760) 240-7400 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78CRIME (27463) or you may leave the information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com.
