Police seek suspects in Suffolk ATM scam
Police are searching for the suspects who have been cloning ATM cards at four Bank of America branches in Suffolk County.
Police say the men installed "skimming devices" on the ATMs, which copy account information when transactions are made. Officials say the thieves then use the information to make withdrawals.
Detective Sgt. Stephen Jensen, of the Suffolk County Police Department, says because the skimmers can pick up hundreds of credit and debit cards numbers, it's hard to determine how many accounts have been compromised.
Police say the thieves are likely from Eastern Europe and part of organized crime rings.
Anyone with information is asked to call Suffolk Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
