Possible skimmer used to steal from Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union customers


    The Abilene Police Department is warning customers of Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union to check their bank accounts for any suspicious activity.

    Over the weekend, police received several reports from ATFCU customers, all of which said that someone withdrew hundreds of dollars from their bank accounts using ATM machines at various convenience stores around Abilene.

    According to incident reports, four people called police on Saturday to report between $180 and $500 was stolen from their accounts.

    Police originally said it may have been a data breach. But they're now saying a skimmer was possibly placed on an ATM.

    " Our plastics department and security team are working to determine the location or locations of where this equipment was mounted," said ATFCU President/CEO James Boyd. "We want to reassure our members that they are not financially responsible for any fraudulent charges made on their accounts.”

    Surveillance cameras caught two suspects using stolen bank account information from one of the victims to withdraw money at a convenience store.

    If you recognize them, you are asked to call Abilene Crime Stoppers at (325) 676-8477 (TIPS).

    All tipsters will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward.
