Larchmont police now say six individuals reported unauthorized withdrawals from their bank accounts – one of whom lost a total of $130,000.
The other victims reported losses of $9,500, $5,800, $3,200, $2,400 and $1,000.
This is what a bank skimmer looks like.
A similar scam was discovered recently at a Rye Citibank.
Citibank sent us this response to the ATM skimming that occurred at its Larchmont branch:
The safety and security of our customer account and personal information is a top priority. Citibank identified illegal skimming devices placed on our ATM location at 1920 Palmer Ave and took corrective action to prevent this type of skimming fraud. Any affected customers will not be responsible for unauthorized charges. Customers with questions or concerns are welcome to contact customer service or stop by the branch. We will continue to cooperate with the Larchmont Police Department as they conduct their investigation.
