Dalton police investigating ATM scam

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, WHITFIELD COUNTY (WRCB)-- Dalton police are investigating a scam at local ATM.

Police Spokesperson Bruce Frazier says a "skimmer" device was found in the drive thru ATM at Regions Bank at the corner of Tibbs Road and Walnut Avenue.

Frazier says the card reader was replaced with the device, which stores the card's number and PIN information.

He says it's unclear of how long the skimmer was there, but says anyone who notices unusual or fraudulent activity should notify their bank.

As detectives continue their investigation, Frazier says it's important to be on the lookout for signs of tampering such as a loose card reader or keyboard.

He says anyone who suspects tampering should contact their bank and local police department.
