Salina Police are investigating after another victim discovers her account information was stolen from a skimming device used at a Sunflower Bank drive up ATM.
Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that a Salina woman contacted police after noticing two withdrawals were made from her checking account from ATM’s in Ardmore, Oklahoma and an unnamed location in Mississippi.
Loss is just over $604.
Salina Police first learned about two suspected skimmers on July 9th, used at drive up ATMs at two Sunflower Bank locations in Salina; 2450 S. 9th and 2070 S. Ohio.
A skimmer is a device used to steal personal information. A thief attaches it to an ATM. The bank customer’s card slides through the skimmer first – then into the machine.
A chip inside the skimmer device records information about the account without the knowledge of the customer.
Police in Salina on Monday released a video, and two images captured on a bank security camera of a person placing the skimmer on the ATM at the bank location on South Ohio Street.
