Skimming has hit Larchmont. I was a victim from the Palmer Citibank, for $3800. The LPD said several reports came in before mine. While the Citibank folks at the branch were empathetic (one woman brought me to the machine and explained how skimming worked), the “investigators” at the bank are impossible to reach. The fraud dept tells me that they will take “up to 45 days” to “decide” whether they will restore the money. Maddening.
You will recall it was the Citibank in Rye that was hit last. We are in touch with the Larchmont Police and will report back if we can add more information.
