$3,000 Reward for Center City ATM-Skimming Suspect
When you dip your bank card into an ATM machine, you probably expect that your bank information is being kept safe and private, but police say that the man seen here installed skimming devices on ATM machines in Philadelphia, possibly compromising your data.
The Philadelphia Police Department has released surveillance photos of a man whom they say installed such a device on an ATM inside the 7-Eleven at 800 Walnut Street on Friday, July 17th. He appears to be wearing a shirt that reads, “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH.”
The same man is suspected of placing a skimming device on the same ATM a week earlier. He’s also wanted in connection with a skimming device found on the 200 block of Market Street in Old City on Sunday, July 26th, and for the placement of multiple skimming devices in Montgomery County.
A $3,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his identification and arrest. Anyone with information should contact the Major Crimes Unit at 215-686-3396. More photos below.
