The Daily Journal is reporting on a relatively sophisticated scam that was being run on the Avenue
A card-skimming device attached to an ATM at the U.S. Bank branch at 1423 Burlingame Ave. was confirmed to have compromised the accounts of several Hillsborough and Burlingame residents, Hillsborough police Capt. Doug Davis said.
Though it is sophisticated gear, the installation is apparently pretty easy
A card-skimming device, if done well, can blend in seamlessly with a bank’s ATM machine, according to Davis. The device is placed over the part of the ATM where the card is inserted, and the scammer can later use the information stored on the card to make purchases or steal an identity, he said.
Through a joint police investigation, Hillsborough and Burlingame police detectives confirmed that the skimmer was in place on the ATM on Jan. 26 and 27, as well as Feb. 3, Davis said.
So check your US Bank statements closely.
