By Elizabeth Flock
A 48-year-old woman discovered what appeared to be an ATM skimmer while using an ATM at a Bank of America in Anne Arundel County on Jan. 22, police said.
At approximately 5:26 p.m., officers responded to a call from to the Bank of America in the 600 block of Annapolis Boulevard in Severna Park, for a recovered ATM skimmer affixed to the ATM machine.
The woman told police she observed what appeared to be a fraudulent device attached to the machine for the purpose of scanning the ATM cards of customers. She had pried the device from the machine before the suspect could return to retrieve the device and obtain customer data.
This appears to be an isolated incident and no personal account information has been compromised for individuals that used the ATM, police said.
The case is being investigated by the United States Secret Service with the assistance of the Anne Arundel County Police Department.
