OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — Oak Bluffs police say the FBI is now involved in the investigation of an ATM scam that may have netted the suspects nearly $200,000 already.
Lt. Timothy Williamson says two men placed a device on the card reader of an ATM in the Martha's Vineyard town and a small camera to record personal identification numbers. He says the information can be transferred to blank cards and used to make unlawful withdrawals from other ATMs.
So far, victims have reported more than $180,000 stolen from across the country and Williamson tells the Cape Cod Times (http://bit.ly/15XcPlb ) that is expected to grow.
Police believe the devices culled information from Sept. 1 to Sept. 3 and information from upward of 150 customers could have been stolen.
Police have released surveillance photos of the suspects.
