Reports of bank card skimming at Crosspool ATM

The cash machine in Crosspool precinct

The cash machine in Crosspool precinct

We’ve received several reports from concerned local residents who have had unauthorised withdrawals from their accounts after using the cash machine in Crosspool.

It seems that people who took cash out early last week have had attempted withdrawals from their account by someone in America.

Some banks have identified the unusual activity and stopped funds leaving customers’ accounts. If you have used the ATM outside Spar over the last week or so then we recommend that you double-check the transactions on your account and contact your bank if you see anything unusual.

The police have been informed. They tell us that this ATM is not run by Spar, but by a company called Bank Machines, who it appears has just fitted a green security device to the machine.

If you’ve been a victim of this you can report your incident to the police by calling 0114 220 2020. If you want to speak to Bank Machines, they can be contacted on 0800 028 6923.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear any other news.
