FBI: 3 placed 'skimming' devices on ATMs in Carlisle, Shippensburg

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for the public's help to identify three men suspected of placing "skimming" devices on automatic teller machines in Carlisle and Shippensburg.

The FBI released surveillance photos of the men Tuesday.

Authorities said the devices, which scan the cards of unsuspecting customers and save the account and PIN information, were hidden on ATMs at bank branches inside retail stores between March 12-22.

The skimming devices were installed and removed during non-business banking hours, but while the retail stores were opened.

The three cloned credit and debit cards using data from the skimming devices, then withdrew money from ATMs at various convenience, pharmacy and retail stores in the Philadelphia area, according to an FBI news release.

Authorities said one of the men installed and removed the skimming devices, while the other two served as lookouts.

They were believed to be driving a small, white, newer-model four-door sedan with no front license plate.

Anyone who can identify them is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000.
