MCDONOUGH, Ga --A well organized, sophisticated fraud ring is committing a crime that is becoming harder and harder to detect because of the technology they are using, according to Henry County Police.
ATM skimmers have been around for a long time but they are getting very hard for bank customers to detect. At one ATM in McDonough, 225 customers had their bank account information stolen, according to police.
So far, police have received reports from about 20 people whose accounts were breached. That leaves about 200 more who don't even know they're information was stolen. Lt. Joey Smith said the suspects haven't used their information yet, but probably will.
Lt. Smith said the suspects are using skimmers, electronic devices that are placed over the card slot on an ATM and when you put your card in, it scans your account information.
