Card skimming device found on Fife pay-at-pump

 

A card skimming device has been found at a petrol pump pay machine at a supermarket in Dunfermline.

It was found at the Tesco Fire Station store petrol station in Winterthur Lane, Dunfermline, on Saturday.

Police are now warning people to check machines before they insert a card.

Detective Inspector Colin Robson, of Police Scotland, said, “Such devices often feature a skimming mechanism and a camera which records their key strokes.

He added, “This allows the criminal to clone the card and, having obtained the PIN, use them to withdraw cash at any ATM.”

The device was removed and police say they are following a positive line of inquiry.
