Chicago Police Warn of Illegal Skimmers on ATMs

CHICAGO (AP) __ Chicago police have issued a warning about
illegal skimming devices being placed on ATMs in the city.
Officers say two of the skimming devices, which are used to
illegally record personal identity information, were found earlier
this week on an ATM on North Lincoln Avenue. They tell the Chicago
Tribune the devices were found after the victim attempted to
withdraw money from the machine and two of them fell from the ATM.
Business owners are being asked to contact the supplier of the
ATM and ask for periodic checks of the machines to make sure they
are not compromised.
