Card Skimmer Found At Southside Bank

‘Card Skimmer’

Located In ATM

At Southside Bank

Press Conference Underway At Troop C

State Police at Troop C today released this image of the individual they suspect may have installed a “card skimmer” at the ATM at Community Bank’s Southside office.

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.
