    ATM Skimming Throughout Chicago Prompts Police To Issue Citywide Alert
    CHICAGO - Police issued a citywide alert after skimming devices were found on 13 ATMs throughout the city. Police said devices has been found over or inside card slots to steal information. Cameras have also been found that can record PIN numbers as they are entered.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • Mute Mute Me

    Isn't a skimmer put it by placing a card in the machine? That would look like a regular transaction was taking place.

  • all these atms should have a camera right?

    instead of issuing an alert to check the machine, maybe they should launch and investigation and have an alert for the suspects

    where are the pictures of the suspects, with all those locations there should be something, right... like all walgreeen entrances have a camera. what about parking lot cameras, etc vehicle photos

    Anyone with information should call police at 312-746-9661.

    I blocked Milo's post from my news feed because I don't care to see them. I didn't say I blocked my friends. I don't go on FB to discuss politics let alone to see the factually inaccurate incendiary posts Milo shares. These days I use FB to get my baseball fix and to see photos of my friends' dogs and/or kids. I don't care who you voted for or why you think Bernie Sanders was a better candidate or why someone voted Trump.

    You don't know me so you can't say where my political affiliation lies. You're just making assumptions because I don't care for that clown Milo. I'm not surprised though that someone who likes Milo comes at me with comments like "which way to the safe space?"
