By Washington Post editors

Rockville Police found a skimming device used to capture bank card numbers on a Wachovia Bank automated teller machine Saturday night, NBC 4 reports.

The device was found at a bank in the 1600 block of Rockville Pike.

A customer reported seeing the skimming device, police said.

Customers who have used the ATM should check for unusual activity on their account and report anything suspicious to the bank.

There are some crimes for which I think we should reinstitute public floggings.

There was another Wachovia bank I think in VA which also had a card skimmer. I am a Wachovia customer and I am getting very leery of using their ATMs. I may be forced to go inside the bank to get cash or just you my debit card from now on.
