FBI Now Involved In ATM Scam On Martha’s Vineyard
Between September 1st and the 3rd, over 150 users of an ATM in the town of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard were scammed out of over $180,000. The FBI is now involved in the investigation of who the scammers were.
Oak Bluffs police say two men placed a device on the card reader of an ATM in their town and a small camera to record personal ID numbers. That information can be transferred to blank cards and used to make unlawful withdrawals at other ATM’s.
So far, victims have reported more than $180,000 stolen from across the country, and that number is expected to grow as more people have charges posted.
