Among them were Rollie Fingers, Eddie Murray, Tim Rains, Ozzie Smith, Ryan Sweeney, Chris Gomez, A.J. Pierzynski, Tim Crabtree, Todd Zeile and more.

ONEONTA – Community Bank customers concerned their confidential information may have been compromised by the Scranton ATM Scanner are being advised to call their local branches.
Bank Senior VP/Retail Banking Hal Wentworth said bank policy is not to discuss security breaches publicly, but added, “We are cooperating with law enforcement on this ongoing investigation.”
Community Bank follows Visa’s zero-liability policy, Wentworth said, “which protects our customers from fraud or unauthorized use of their accounts.”
ONEONTA – State police reported today a card-skimming device was found in the ATM on the Community Bank drive-thru window at its Southside Oneonta branch on Route 23, and also released a photo of a man they suspect may have placed it there.
The device, which fits inconspicuously over the card slot, reads information from any card that it swipes; the data can then be used to make fraudulent purchases.
