ATM targeted by fraudsters AGAIN
People in Rutherglen are being urged to remain vigilant at cash machines after a card skimming device was discovered at an ATM in the town this week.
The device, attached to the TSB cash machine on Rutherglen Main Street, was uncovered by a member of public who attempted to retrieve money on Thursday, August 4.
It is the fifth device to be found at a cash machine in the area in the past four months.
A spokeswoman for the bank said: “TSB takes any issue of fraud and theft very seriously and we would like to remind customers to remain vigilant when using their bank cards.
“We can confirm a device was placed on the ATM at the TSB Rutherglen branch, but was removed immediately by a member of the public, who we would like to thank. The local police have been made aware.
“If a customer has any concern of unexplained activity against their bank accounts, please contact the local branch or the customer services helpline.”
The news comes after three ATMs in Rutherglen were targeted by fraudsters on April 4.
The Nationwide Building Society and Santander Bank were fitted with card skimming devices, along with a third ATM on Rutherglen Main Street.
The Santander ATM was reportedly fitted with a second device that covered the ATM’s keypad with a replica pad on Saturday, April 22.
Police told the Reformer pat rols around cash machines would increase following the spate of scams in April.
