Cash Machine warning

Alert message sent 16/02/2012 14:19:00
Information sent on behalf of Nottinghamshire Police
Cash Machines Warning
 
There have been a number of fraud devices found on cash machines in the West Bridgford area over the last few months, all with similar mechanisms.
 
The offenders place a strip over the front of the machine where you enter your card; this often contains a camera to record your pin number.
Please have a close look at the cash machine before entering your card and check that the plastic panel is fixed securely to the machine. This panel will look very similar to the normal cash machine front panel and may be made from metal or plastic.
 
When using the machine cover the key pad with your hand to stop your pin number being recorded or seen by anyone nearby.
 
If you have any suspicions when using the machine please call the police immediately on 101 or in an emergency call 999.
