Scam warning on cash machines

ATM users are being urged to be more security conscious after another card skimming device was found attached to the front of an ATM in Bondi Junction last Saturday.

Police seized the device for examination, and said any ATM could be the target of fraudulent activity. People were asked to be aware of anything that appears to be out of the ordinary when using ATMs. Anything protruding around the front of the machine slot where cards are entered should be reported to police. The device may be made from a different material to the ATM itself, police said.
