Beware Scanning Device Inserted in Nat West ATM

Anyone who has used the Nat West ATM in Market Place over the last 24 hours should check their bank statement for any fraudulent use on their bank card after a scanning device was discovered on the ATM.

The device looks like the cover of the cash withdrawal dispenser (photo below). David Eggleton forwarded these photos to us after a friend of his discovered the unit after no cash was dispensed.  The police have been informed and are checking the CCTV in the area.

David said, “The scanning device looks exactly like the cash dispenser cover.  People need to be aware of these devices, particularly if no cash is dispensed. Please check your bank statement if you used this ATM.”

If you have any information about this crime, please call the police on 101.
